Microsoft Confirms Project Natal for October

Redmond has confirmed leaks that pointed toward an October launch for the company's motion sensing gaming peripheral, Project Natal. According to GamesIndustry.biz, Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq said the device will be launching "somewhere in October."

Tariq was asked when the device would be launching in Saudi Arabia; the marketing manager replied that it would launch at the same time as the rest of the world. Tariq said that Microsoft would be in a position to confirm an exact date at E3 in June. Presumably E3 will also bring us a new, official, retail name for the peripheral.

    Hope there'll be good games that also come with this, maybe a 3d firmware would be good too! (psych, not with the XBOX's DVD drive)

    I know MS is into this sort of thing, but by this time the name is stuck. Why not keep the name Natal? It may not describe the device in any meaningful way, but even my parents have heard of it now.

    I would like to see an FPS use this gadget.
