Natal launch details leak from secret Microsoft tour
Posted by XanTium | November 11 11:50 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From mcvuk.com:


MCV can this week reveal first details regarding the launch of Microsoft's Project Natal.

Our sources say the innovative controller-free 360 camera will be released worldwide in November 2010.

This and other details have emerged following a behind-closed-doors Microsoft tour of UK publishers and studios - the format-holder has been demoing the tech and detailing its 2010 plans in order to spur more development support.

Microsoft is planning to manufacture 5m units for day one release, with a mix of console and camera plus solus SKUs expected.

The device should cost under 50 when sold solo. One publishing source says Microsoft is "trying to get as close as possible to 'impulse buy'". Another even says the camera could even retail for just 30.

14 games are being readied for launch.

50-30 sounds a great retail price, here's hoping amazon.com/amazon.co.uk will do a great pre-order deal.

There is no way Microsoft is going to sell it from $50-$80. There is way too much technology packed inside for their pricing to be reasonable. That's two cameras with a microphone and its own on-board processor.

this is definitely going to be more than $100/60

Too gimmicky for me, plus, i won't be considering microsoft for future console purchases, for many various reasons, and i also won't be purchasing any more of their hardware for the 360, don't like the way they go about business, their attitude is all too serious for a gaming machine, and all they do is overprice things, generally annoy most of their customers and release poor quality hardware, and major nelson gets on my tits.

Maybe another company will have a go at making a console, otherwise, it's sony for me.

He is assuming your previous comment was referring to being banned from XBOX Live for playing pirate copies of games.

So it's too gimmicky for you, plus you won't purchase any future MS products. Why exactly did you post in this thread then?

Because it was on the xbox scene news, why did you post here about me posting here?

These are forums.. believe it or not they are designed for discussion and personal opinions, why are your questioning it? have i upset a fanboy or something?

I made a post, it is my opinion, why do you question my opinion? do you even have your own opinion? even more to the point, why do you care what i think?

Besides, its not about piracy, i am admin over at 360gamesaves.com, which are hosted by the same place as xbox scene, my beef is mainly with the intolerance of gamesaving and the pointless pursuit of banning people who inflate a meaningless score for some fun..

Some of you guys jump to conclusions far too easily..
