Natal is a gimmick.
There, I've said it. While the technology is undeniably incredible (the implications for game customization are very attractive, as shown in the E3 spot, and intelligent recognition is an exciting emerging technology), I cannot imagine a scenario in which I would even want to apply this to playing video games. What many people seemingly do not realize is that controllerless input for video games has been tried and it has failed several times over the years. (Do you even remember the Sega Activator? U-Force? Probably not, because they were utter failures!) I don't want to have to jump around my living room to play the latest Super Mario incarnation. Stop making us wave our arms and legs around like idiots just to play a game. (Plus, if we all give up controllers, my huge thumbs will be genetically undesirable! D:)
any linux mipsel routing device that has the router administration interface or sshd or telnetd in a DMZ, which has weak username/passwords (including openwrt/dd-wrt devices)
This does not exclude Tomato, especially if your router is set up as mentioned or you have weak passwords.
I'm excited for the game, most definitely, but this trailer completely misses anything interesting a prospective player or long-time fan might want to see, like the mythological beasts and characters and engaging story that the game series has brought to us in the past.
Trailer rating: "You missed the point. Come back after class to try again."
