When is Project Natal (Xbox controller-free gaming) coming out? I hope there will be an API for it, so that random people (me) can make games with it.
The DirectX API for joysticks and steering wheels is called DirectInput. I think the Natal API should be called DirectNoInput.
Dan will probably say that doesn't make sense, because there is still input. In fact there is more input.
Anyway, it's been five minutes and I already thought of two ridiculous games I want to make. I hope they actually get the camera recognition to work with reasonable quality under all types of lighting and clothing & skin colors. The disclaimer of "actual functionality may differ" is concerning.
