Bungie has denied claims by Microsoft that Halo:Reach would be using Project Natal’s motion sensing capabilities. One would have to think if the flagship series of the 360 isn’t going to use it’s flagships newest device that perhaps Reach will indeed be the final contribution that Bungie will be making to the series. Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, however if you were making the most anticipated game in a franchise’s history that is exclusive to that console, then you would think that developer would use any and all accessories at it’s disposal.
Bungie added on it’s website “Halo: Reach is NOT a Natal title and is being developed expressly with the traditional Xbox 360 controller in mind,” the developer said in a post to its official site. This comes as good news for hardcore gamers who believe that Project Natal is nothing more than a move by Microsoft to take advantage of the success Nintendo is having with it’s motion sensor controllers. Same can be said with Sony, who will also be releasing it’s own motion sensor controller this year as well. But that is a different story.
