Despite Microsoft keeping tight lipped about any information regarding Natal’s release date (except for a comment from Steve Balmer which he later retracted), THQ’s boss Brian Farrel has given us some insight into when we might actually see the much talked about Natal system. Last night he mentioned that Natal will be coming “late next year”, giving something for Xbox users to look forward to Christmas 2010.
Natal is Microsoft’s big entry into interactive motion sensitive gaming of this type and will supposedly be offering gamers an unsurpassed level of immersion and gameplay experience with a completely 3d full body motion capture system.
This is the technology some of us dreamed about as kids. 2010-2011 could definitely be a defining point in video game history.
