THQ Vice President Danny Bilson has said that he has ideas for a forty-million dollar game for Xbox 360’s motion controller Natal, but are waiting to see the Natal install-base before jumping into development.
“I have some concepts and some ideas that use Natal in a core game in a really, really cool way,” Bilson told CVG.
“But to your other question I don’t think the experience with the technology is there, I don’t think the install base is there because the game I’m thinking about is a $30m/$40m Natal game and the install base isn’t there yet to support that. The concept I have uses every corner of that tech and maybe in a couple of years we’ll do it.”
He added: “So there’s core potential there but on the creative side I’m absolutely focused on core… so an idea I have for that, aside for the one that we have, is a big core game.
“I think we have to wait a little bit just for the install base to justify spending a ton of money. Because my idea is a really expensive idea.”
Makes sense. It’s better seeing how the product does in sales before going off creating a game of that scale for it.
