We're so used to seeing diplomatic and political rhetoric from gaming executives, so I congratulate the CEO of Virtual Air Guitar Company for directly addressing Microsoft's Natal in a post on the Official PlayStation Blog.
The independent studio is working on a game called Kung-Fu Live, which will be a downloadable PS3 game set for release later this year. It's a game focused on using the Playstation Eye, which has sadly been out of the picture for a while.

In his PS Blog post, Virtual Air Guitar Company CEO Teemu Maki-Patola mentions that the game was officially unveiled last week at an exclusive event, and points to some of the early reception.

The post reads, "People have been saying that our game and tech using the PlayStation Eye is stealing the thunder from Natal. LOL!"

Maki-Patola goes on to say that full-motion body tracking already exists just as well on the PS3, with the Playstation Eye camera that has been available since 2007.

To be fair to Microsoft, this is just one pretty simplistic game and not an entire video game platform or infrastructure. However, Kung-Fu Live is a good example of reiterating that the core concept behind Natal is not all that revolutionary.
