E3 will be the proper coming out party for both Project Natal and PlayStation Move. What's going to be particularly interesting is the kinds of games that publishers commit to each motion control platform. Mini-game collection? Hardcore experiences? Casual games? Most likely, it'll be a healthy mix of everything above and each design set comes with a different set of expectations, including price.
At the end of a a fiscal 2010 fourth quarter results call, one analyst quizzed THQ CEO Brian Farrell how much his Project Natal and PlayStation Move games might cost at retail later this year and beyond.
Farrell gave a surprisingly honest answer about his company's plans.
"Retail pricing is going to be very interesting [for PlayStation Move and Project Natal]," said the THQ leader. "We have not announced that. In fact, we're still deliberating internally on that and we're going to watch and look at what's going on in the market for the next several months and we may or may not even announce those launch prices until much closer to launch."
Wii games tend to be about $49.99 -- $10 less than most Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases.
