Microsoft Marketing Coup Natal in Smallville
Smallville fans and gamers alike got something of a shock on Friday night when Microsoft's Xbox 360 add-on, Project Natal, made a rather awkward appearance.

It features in an already-awkward date scene, which leads us to wonder exactly what Microsoft's message is here. It certainly doesn't say that Natal is the most social or graceful device ever created. The player even turns to a rather deflated Chloe and says “Maybe you need to look ridiculous!” A moral message if ever we saw one.

That's Ricochet 'playing' (or mimed) on the screen for those that are wondering. So far it is about the only game that's definitely coming out for the peripheral. Now watch the video below and watch that man dance confusingly. That's marketing money at work, that is.

I said "gay" and "fag" a lot of times when I saw that episode.
