Microsoft is expected to pull out all of the virtual stops with regards to Project Natal during E3 2010 in a few weeks, and one of the big reveals that’s looking more and more likely is a name change.
Citing an inside source, NowGamer reports that the actual name for Natal is Wave, and Microsoft will make the official reveal during E3.
Project Natal always seemed like a placeholder name, but after almost a year’s worth of promotion, during which time the motion-control system’s title has entered into the popular consciousness, it’s going to interesting to see how long it will take for people to adopt the new name, should it be something drastically different than Natal.
I’m waiting to hear back from Microsoft about the rumor, but I have a feeling I already know what they’re going to say. I’ll let you know if I’m wrong. In the meantime, the chance of this rumor being true: 72.81 percent.
