Microsoft: Recently Revealed Project Natal Details Were "Rumors"


Posted November 17, 2009 - By Jake Gaskill

Rumors About A New Xbox 360 Have Been Refuted And RevisedLast week, Stephen “Retractions are for losers” Johnson told you about supposed launch details being leaked about Microsoft’s motion-control technology Project Natal. Well, during an event last night in London for the latest Xbox 360 update, Xbox UK head Neil Thompson told GamesIndustry.biz that those leaks "weren’t accurate, they were rumors."

Thompson went on to say that Microsoft is "still very much in the baking on Natal and there’s a lot of things to get decided on it." Well, that certainly puts a lot of questions to rest, namely, "What’s the strangest way to incorporate baking into a discussion about the development of a motion-control technology?"

While it pains me to agree with Stephen "Making it hard to agree with me since 1986" Johnson, the $80 price point, 5 million units available on release date and 14 launch titles wouldn’t be that surprising in the least. That’s why Thompson’s comments strike me as a typical diversionary tactic to keep the peace until an official announcement is made, which we probably shouldn't expect for at least a few more months.
