The Kinect news from Microsoft's pre-E3 conference keeps streaming in fast and furious. The latest is the first official image of what the formerly named Project Natal looks like.

I haven't seen anything out of this that interests me, but the actual design of the camera is pretty slick looking.

is it me or they are trying to go after the old PS3 style ??
i mean its kinda rounded edges and shiny black touch

It does kinda look like it would go better with the original glossy black PS3 rather than the 360. I guess we'll just have to wait for the confirmed 360 redesign and see...

Kotaku recently posted some images and it's actually a lot deeper than I thought.

looks sleek and high tech

See, the problem with this, the Wii, and the Move is the giant bar you have to place in front or on top of your tv. Where do I put the Wii sensor bar once the Move camera comes into play? This thing looks HUGE. I'd have to buy a new TV stand just to fit that someplace.

HHmm 3 Lenses? wow that's a bit excessive for the functionality i've seen so far

Very shiny. Looks a lot better than the white one that was originally shown off when it was first unveiled.

I've seen that public television commercial, and it gave me chills. Now it's just hilarious, LOL.

For those confused, that commercial is for a seatbelt awareness commercial that aired on PBS I think. The guy just threw Kinect on the end to make it funny.

It looks sleek, which is good. Of course, the 360 isn't a bad looking piece of hardware, just one that hasn't had the best of histories. I wonder the purpose of the version with the tilt mechanism, but more will be revealed over the next few months.

@talltony: Is that for real? If so, I'm very confused... Kinect, practice safe virtual driving or your house may be covered in glitter? I'm thinking that's a fake commercial someone made. Correction, I'm hoping that's a fake commercial someone made.

talltony2148d ago

regardless its pretty funny

Moonboots2148d ago (Edited 2148d ago )

The commercial is a parody of a seat belt public safety ad and I believe it is fan made with Natal edited in at the end.

Christopher2148d ago

Thank heaven that isn't real. Thanks Moonboots. Bubs!

Looks alright. Hopefully there's a white version as well.

Sexiest Camera in the console market(and even PC's?). Matches high end piano black bezels on modern HDTVs nicely plus the design is artsy. Perfect for always being very near the HDTV panel.

I could actually put this on top or on the base of my Samsung(thanks god I just got a new 2010 650 series with the flat Base)

The rumored and supposed leaked of the New X360 Slim is Black.
