Or, thank God for YouTube and stupid game blogs (like this one!) to help spread potential b.s. as possible news. After watching the video about five times (full disclosure: as a guy that’s nuts for alternative means of gaming, I’m SUPER interested in Natal and obsess over every little detail that comes down the pipeline), I’ve yet to see any correlation between the actions performed by the dude and what’s happening onscreen. Note: that doesn’t mean this video is necessarily fake, I just hope it is. Otherwise, Natal might not be all that it’s cracked up to be. Or it could indeed be a faker and the egg’s on my face!
Via Destructoid. BTW, a bonus YouTube vid, one that’s been making the rounds all day. It’s the N64 kid, but updated:
