In the coming months, as more developers start to play around with Project Natal and experiment with ways to use it, it's likely we're going to be hearing more and more developers discover it's not for them. Epic Games might be in that camp, though the developer hasn't ruled out the possibility just yet.
"As game creators, anytime we see new tech like that the ideas always come out," said Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski in an interview with Develop magazine. "I can’t go into the ones I’ve had because, obviously, someone else might do it. Y’know, we’ll take a look at Natal - no promises - but it’s likely that the classic control interface is what Epic will be working on in the foreseeable future."
Gears of Natal? Not so much. It'll be interesting to see the approach developers take. Will it be a repeat of the Wii, with several years of botched attempts to incorporate a brand-new interface?
