An IGN forum poster noted one unfortunate side effect for Project Natal:
It cannot detect darker skin pigments.
The quoted text contains a link to the original article where this discovery was found.
The alternate sources include how the technology used in Natal is less effective with darker skin pigments and the original article this discovery was found.
Oops, I guess.
"When game consultant and former Newsweek writer N'Gai Croal gave Paradise a test drive, however, the game had trouble reading his steering actions. The footwork (gas and brakes) worked fine, but Croal couldn't steer his car at all."
