oh shit, could be a problem. Old games would not be able to be patched for Natal (doubt that they would anyway). It also means games supporting Natal might have to be toned down.

I don't see how that would be a problem.

If Natal takes up 10% of the CPU power to track motion, it means 10% less power for the core game engine to run on.

It means that games supporting Natal might have to have toned down graphics so that the game can run smoother.

Meh, if Wii players can cope with PS2 graphics I think we can deal with some slightly less appealing graphics. It's not like it will be that big a difference. Probably just look like the launch titles for the 360 (if That Bad).

it will have next to no effect. becuase
1. the GPU handles the majority of the graphics
2. no game uses 100% of the CPUs Power any way.
so no differences just a heavier load on the CPU but nothing it cant handle.

This is probably no problem....

Gears of Wars 2 is one of the best looking game on any console and utilizes about 70% of the power from the 360.

So with the "natal" or what it will be called about 85% of the maximum power will be consumed.

Still not excited. If it lets me squeeze boobs, I may reconsider it.

Its all up to how the developers use the other 85%.
