Greenberg: Natal to be around for 5 years

In an interview with CVG, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has hit out at accusations that Natal is nothing more than a glorified EyeToy, or even comparable to PlayStation Arc.

“We obviously could have done a motion controller if we’d have wanted to do that, but we felt that would be a much more interruptive experience.”

When talking about the product life of Natal, Greenberg was optimistic about its longevity, “The richness of the technology is going to really enable experiences that never had existed before,” he said. “And we’re not just speaking about what we’re doing this year, but I think two, three, four, five years from now as this evolves.”
