Peter Molyneux has said that any fears over Project Natal having lag are unfounded.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz the Microsoft man told the website that there have been “countless revisions of cameras and countless revisions of software since the demo units shown to press and celebrities in recent weeks were produced.”
The criticism for the camera came after Jonathan Ross commented via his Twitter account that Natal was “not quite there yet”, although Microsoft soon came out to reveal that this was an old build of the technology.
Molyneux meanwhile has been stating his frustration at not being able to show the camera off more saying,
It’s always a huge frustration as a designer when you see somebody play a version when you know it’s been exceeded many times over.
It so often happens, because you do a version for a show and then you don’t do another version because you’re too busy developing the game.”
So very often you get a position that what a person’s looking at is two, three, four months, a year old and you kind of want to go, ‘no, no, it’s 10 times better than that!’ So it is very, very frustrating; it always is – there’s just countless revisions of cameras since the one at X10 and countless revisions of software.
So there you go, Natal isn’t laggy and the World is a better place, thanks Peter.
