Xbox bigwig pooh-poohs Natal's November 2010 launch

Gadget 'still in the baking'

The essential guide to IT transformation

Project Natal won’t launch in November 2010, despite recent claims to the contrary, a UK Microsoft executive has stated.

Neil Thompson, the UK head of all things Xbox, said: “We’re still very much in the baking on Natal and there’s a lot of things to get decided on it,” a report by website Games Industry said.

Last week, Register Hardware reported how Natal's global launch date had supposedly been uncovered during a series of 'behind closed doors' meetings between Microsoft and various UK games publishers and studios.

Thompson, however, has since labelled the launch claim and subsequently leaked details about the motion-based controller’s potential UK launch price – said to be between £30 and £50 ($84/€53) – as inaccurate rumours. ®
