    Re: Tech explained - Motion-sensing game controllers explained

    with regards to the Xbox Natal - wouldnt all that sensing require quite a significant amount of processing power? would that be done within the device or passed on to the Xbox? If its passed onto the XBox then surely it will eat into the proccessing power already used for the games causing dropped frames and/or stalling unless your playing on really low res games... Guess its a wait and see thing but it all seems too complicated to stand a chance against the wii

    i'm sure the device has a decoder or some sort of processor inside it, i think all the xbox would receive is data.
