MCV has a scoop on Project Natal from a “secret” developers tour. According to their sources, the device will launch in November 2010 with fourteen titles.

 

At Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Activision, Disney, Namco Bandai, Capcom, Konami, and Sega were confirmed with other publishers as third party Natal developers. Rare is said to be working on Natal projects too.

 

Pricing has not been finalized, but it may be under £50 ($82). Another publisher says it may be £30 and priced as a possible “impulse buy.”

    For that price, I might actually end up buying it. Even if I’d probably end up not using it much.

    It kinda makes sense too. Even if they sold it at a loss, it’s in their best interest to get Natal inside as many houses as possible.

    I’m sure the comparison has been made before, but seeing that dude kicking at the screen brought back memories of the revolutionary Sega Activator.

    November 2010 seems pretty close to the end of the 360′s lifecycle.

    Yeah well they can count me out, I barely like most Wii games because of the motion controls and in all honesty I am a little too old to be playing “pretend”. Joking aside I am not sure who they are selling this to, the Wii’s audience has a console and the majority of the 360′s user base is just not into this kind of thing. I wont say it will flop but its going to be a hard sell, and if MS wants to really sell it they are going to have to change the image the 360 has, which will be at the expense of their already established consumer base.

      Nonsense, you’re never too old to play pretend!

      Though I’m not too interested, either. I would like to see the developers try something new with motion control. Flower is absolutely lovely; more like that, please.

    I cannot wait for the videos of people jumping into their TVs. ^__^

    I dunno, I like the Wii but no controller for motion I don’t like too much, I had the eyetoy for PS2 and I couldn’t have fun with it, especially since it needed a lot of light.
