Iwata: Nintendo thought about Natal-like camera, rejected the idea
Posted 8 years ago by Austin in News, Wii | 0 comments
In an interview with FT.com, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata spoke briefly about Microsoft’s new motion tech, “Project Natal”, citing that Nintendo considered the option of using a camera with the Wii, but concluded that accelerometers were a more efficient way to get where they wanted to get with the Wiimotes.
“Until they say when they’re releasing it, how much it costs and what software it comes with, we won’t know whether that is the route we should have taken. However… I think they couldn’t choose to release exactly the same thing.”

“We can do anything. We’ve got some very, very talented guys. And it just takes time. And dedication. We have the dedication. It would just be, ‘yes, here’s lots of money. Go make this for the PS3.’ [And we would say] ‘Thank you publisher, we will.’” – High Voltage’s Dave Pellas
I’m not sure how I would feel about these games moving to another platform. On one hand, I’d love for more people to get the chance to play these games (if they turn out to be any good), but on the other hand, the more exclusives the Wii has the more core gamers it’ll draw in. Thoughts, anyone?
