Bethesda dev: 'Microsoft should allow Natal apps'

Director Ashley Cheng says 'Natal wasted on games'

Natal will be wasted on games and should be opened up to wider usage and the possibility of independent 'Natal apps'.

That's the opinion of Bethesda Game Studio's director Ashley Cheng, who posted on his blog, "It seems wasted on games, really. Microsoft should open the NATAL API up like Apple does with the iphone/ipad."

"Let anyone make a NATAL 'app.' I bet someone makes a killer app that has nothing to do with gaming."

Ubisoft have recently called Natal revolutionary, along with the PlayStation Move.

Could opening up the peripherals to hobbyists take things to a new level?
