'Guitar Hero' may use Natal technology
RedOctane has said that Microsoft's Project Natal technology will "likely" be used in the Guitar Hero series.

President and co-founder Kai Huang said that the motion-sensing technology is currently being looked into for a variety of possibilities.

"We've definitely been evaluating Microsoft's Natal technology along with a lot of other different technologies that could enhance the Guitar Hero playing experience," he told DS.

"Natal is very interesting because there's so many different things you can do with it, whether it's the motion detecting, maybe sensing how you're playing, or the ability to use it for interactivity purposes and taking advantage of it for party purposes.

"I think the technology is very exciting," he added. "We're evaluating it, and I think it's likely that sometime in the future we'll have those technologies integrated into our games."

Harmonix recently announced that the next Rock Band title will be using Project Natal.
