Microsoft's Kinect - the peripheral formerly known as Natal.
Microsoft has finally given some detail on its Project Natal peripheral, the first bit of which is its proper name – Kinect.
Set for a November launch the device will have at least five launch titles, namely:
Kinectimals – where players can train and play with different types of cats (big cats, not just the household type)
Joyride - A racing game where you can hold an imaginary steering wheel.
Kinect Sport - Think Wii Sports only without the Wiimote; players can box, bowl, play beach volleyball, soccer, table tennis and run track and field.
Kinect Adventure – Details so far point towards a rafting game amongst other things.
Dance Central – made in conjunction with MTV; basically a dancing game without the dance mat.
Retail price is still to be confirmed, though there are rumours of two versions being available at launch.
There are also signs that a new style Xbox 360 is also on the horizon, sporting a new design and slimmer frame. The evidence? This alleged Italian advert.
Microsoft will be delivering more details over the course of E3 – stay tuned to teic.ie to be kept up to date.
