The fine folks over at Source Online may have cracked the mystery of when “Project Natal”, Microsoft’s motion sensitive camera, will be released. According to a “trusted source” Natal is currently slated for an October 26th release, although that could move a couple weeks in either direction. The source also stated that the price point will be $149; alternatively, you can buy an Xbox Arcade bundle with Natal included fr $299. It should be noted that this price point makes Natal priced well above Sony’s Move, which is slated to sell for under $100 and include a game.
In other Natal news, the product will not keep the name “Natal” and the official name will be unveiled at E3 next month. When contacted about this report, Microsoft stated that they “don’t comment on rumor or speculation”. We’ll attempt to stay on top of this as much as possible and hopefully will bring you further Natal news as E3 approaches.
