Project Natal Slated for October
Last time we checked, Microsoft’s solution to the Wii’s motion controls, Project Natal was slated for the holiday season. GamesIndustry.biz reports that Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq said that Project Natal will launch “somewhere in October” worldwide. Granted, it’s not a solid release date, it’s still something to wet the fanboys who can’t wait for some Minority Report style gesture-based controls.
Launching in October could potentially undercut Sony’s Move controller device. Typically, November kicks off the shopping season, but with Sony readying new peripherals, it will be a dirty war this fall. Better start saving your dollars if you want one.
Finally, to round out the Xbox 360 news, video game analyst Michael Pacter from Wedbush Morgan Securities has repeatedly put his bets on an Xbox 360 slim. This would bode well for the Xbox 360, as a smaller console has done wonder for Sony’s once floundering PS3.
