I take great issue with that articles accuracy. Do I believe them to be true? Sure. Only one slight problem though. The survey was done between May 23 and June 5...OF THIS YEAR. Nearly a full year *AFTER* the product announcement. (at least in Natal's case) And that 2000 "gamers" were polled. (probably hard core gamers) Not the Casual market that these technologies are really going after.
And why not do the surveys AFTER this years E3, yes? You know, when there is actual *PUBLIC* publicity over the products? And then ask casual gamers or even non gamers what they think? This is really the people they need to be surveying. Last year at the Natal announce there was a demo on one of the late night shows, and CNN did a small bit I think. But not much else..public wise.
This years coverage (of the E3 demos/announcements)should be more widespread I believe. And Both Microsoft and Sony are going to be advertising to this exact population segment. Not the Halo and W.O.W. freaks lol. (No disrespect intended. Just making a point.)
