No plans for Natal support within existing franchises, original content takes priority

Despite having initially demoed Project Natal working in conjunction with a number of traditionally controlled games, such as Burnout Paradise or Beautiful Katamari, Microsoft has elaborated that there are currently no plans to try and shoehorn Natal support into franchises already on the market. Instead, the focus is shifted towards developing original content designed specifically with Natal in mind.

“If you were going to make a Natal game, it probably wouldn’t be Forza 3,” stated Aaron Greenberg, director for product management for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live. “What we want to do with Natal is bring entirely new original experiences to life … these are going to be brand new original games.” This essentially wraps up speculation as to how Natal might work with more ‘traditionally’ controlled games. Simply put, it won’t.
