184w ago - Today MCVUK.com (linked above) is reporting that XBox 360 Project Natal launch details have leaked from a Microsoft Tour of UK publishers and studios.
According to the leaked information, the controller-free XBox 360 camera will be released worldwide in November, 2010 with five million units to ship for launch day.
To quote: Microsoft is planning to manufacture 5m units for day one release, with a mix of console and camera plus solus SKUs expected.
The device should cost under £50 when sold solo. One publishing source says Microsoft is "trying to get as close as possible to 'impulse buy'". Another even says the camera could even retail for just £30.
14 games are being readied for launch. This summer Xbox studios boss Phil Spencer told MCV the 360 still 'hasn't peaked'.
"When Natal arrives it will feel like a new generation has come," he said. "I see it like the launch of 360 in November '05. Consumers don't want another $400 box right now."
