Is Project Natal’s New Name ‘Wave’?

Rumors have been flying around for weeks stating ‘Wave’ as the new name for Project Natal, the controller-free gaming and entertainment for the Xbox 360. X2theG passed on posting anything on this rumor back when it started because it was debunked right away since Microsoft already has a technology site called Microsoft Wave.

Maybe Microsoft Wave is a front since it’s only talking future tech, including Project Natal and nothing else really. It also sprung up shortly after last year’s 2009 E3 announcement of Project Natal. Coincidence? (Microsoft Wave, Project Natal, Xbox 360)

Hopefully

I think "RatFuker" would have been a better name to be honest.

Now that was funny
No bubbles for you though due to past dumb ones.

On topic: It may be, but is could also be the name of the rumored bundle as a new sku. Like "Arcade" is a named sku.

i think changing the name now may hurt the hype they built on the name NATAL

i mean those are casuals we're talking about
they don't track gaming news as we do

why would you waste your time commenting here if you don't care?

Wave is a pretty horrible name, just Natal would've been good.

It's not Wave
NowGamer were first to suggest this just because of the wavy designs etc, but it is not called WAVE and the circle designs are still there, but revamped as shown in link below

I prefer Natal and everyone knows it as Natal which isn't a bad name IMO.

Everybody knew Wii as the revolution. No one cares, people know it's the code name for the project.

Not picking on you but the logic is funny though.

That's because all you have to do is stand in front of the TV and just wave your arms and you win.

A Rose by any other name
Would still smell as sweet. So the name is really irrelevant. I just want to hurry up and buy one.

I guess we'll know for sure in a couple of days.
Moonboots  +   1491d ago
Yes it is. :) They will not be sticking with the Natal name.
sickbird  +   1491d ago
makes sense seeing thats all you be doing (waving at the screen) AH! BURN!
Igniter  +   1491d ago
You could be Waving goodbye to $150. ROLF!!

Actually, I hope that some of the brighter developers come up with something to make this thing worth what ever they charge for it.

Everything other than Natal would be great, the name just doesn't ring for me too good. The "xbox" was also just a code name for a new console and they stayed with it because it got known among gamers, so maybe this will stay too. Ah who knows
