Project Natal out next Christmas

The terrifying Project Natal motion cam for Xbox 360 will be launching in time for next Christmas, according to head honcho at games publisher THQ.

Microsoft themselves haven’t given gamers any concrete details about the launch of the system yet, but Brian Farrel, whose company is making games for the whizzy new piece of technology, said in an earnings call that it will be out ‘late next year’.

There are big plans afoot for Natal, clearly. Microsoft went big on it at this year’s E3, and an internal bod at Xbox has claimed that the launch will be as big as the one for the Xbox 360 itself.

‘Conceptually, the launch of Natal will be like the launch of Xbox 360,’ said Shane Kim, someone CVG are calling Xbox’s ‘strategy man’. ‘It's going to be that big. We're not just going to ship it when the hardware and software are ready.’
