With Natal’s software launch line-up still shrouded in mystery, the VP of Codemasters Studios Gavin Cheshire has warned developers that simply integrating motion control into existing projects is not sufficient – and could even lead to the commercial failure of the device.

“I’m sure there’ll be games attuned to Natal and that’ll be great, but what you can’t do is back-engineer it into something you’re currently doing,” he told Edge. “And that’s where it’ll fail.

“There are a lot of companies saying they’ve got Natal stuff coming, but it’ll be bolted on to something they already had in development, probably.”
