Microsoft’s Project XBox 360 Natal Pricing & Release Date Leaked

Posted by on May 28, 2010 | Leave a Comment

To catch up with the high Nintendo Wii sales, Microsoft unveiled Project Natal at E3 2009. There are some fresh rumors about the Microsoft Project Natal: it seems like the gaming device will cost $200 and it’s going to be available in white flavor, too. This motion sensing brother of Xbox 360, named Project Natal will be available in November 2010.

Project Natal will be available worldwide November 2010, launch with 14 games, and sell for about 80 US dollars. The new device will be equipped with technology that is “really, really, close” to an actuality. The console, which was described as having a “natural interface,” will have a built in camera with the ability to recognize movement and voice.

November 16th, according to our Mr/Mrs X. That’s a Tuesday; which is unusual here in the UK, where most new game – related releases officially hit the shelves on a Friday. Whenever a game is released here on a Tuesday it’s usually to coincide with a US or worldwide street date. So if this date is correct, it seems safe to assume that this is when Natal will be released across all markets.

If there’s any mix up at all, it would be that this is the date of Activision’s game (details of Natal launch games to follow soon) and not Natal itself. Impossible? Nope. We remember the surreal sight of Condemned on the shelves a week before it was possible to buy an Xbox 360 to play it on…

Nonetheless, our source was adamant that this is the street date issued to those in the industry on a ‘need to know’ basis for Natal. If we’re proven wrong at E3, then do please come back to this post and comment, telling us how foolish we look. If we’re right – and we’ll stick our collective neck out and say that we are right – then please come back and tell us how awesome we are.
