Speaking to Destructoid
, Microsoft's Kudo Tsunoda had some bad news for gamers hoping to see old Xbox 360 game updated with Natal
controls. The Natal team
has been able to effectively implement motion controls in older titles -- like Beautiful Katamari and Space Invaders Extreme
-- but Tsunoda intimated that it required large portions of code to be changed. According to Tsunoda, it's not something that developers could easily patch into older titles. In other words, if you want your favorite pre-Natal title to support motion control, you'll have to hope for a full-fledged re-release from the publisher.
That's definitely a blow for those hoping to enjoy some of their favorite games with motion control, especially considering Sony can patch motion control into older PS3 titles
. Here's hoping Namco sees the light and releases Beautiful Natal-amari
once Project Natal hits retail shelves.
