Natal will 'relaunch' 360 in 2010

MCV: Microsoft Game Studios boss Phil Spencer has told MCV that the new Project Natal controller will effectively relaunch the 360 when it arrives next year.

Speaking to MCV in an exclusive interview, Spencer likened the arrival of the camera-based kit – which senses player movements and requires no physical games controller – to the launch of a new system.

"When Natal comes out it will feel like a new generation has arrived," he said. "I see it as like the launch of the Xbox 360 back in 2005 – there will be a launch portfolio of games to support it."

The story is too old to be commented.

This is why Natal wont fail, MS are putting too much effort into.

Unlike Sony's PSeye where you have to buy countless addons just to match Natals functionality

MS are really pulling no stops when comes to 360...

I really don't see this "relaunch" being as big as 360s launch. I counted the hours when I waited for the 360 to drop and I can't say the same about Natal.

While I'm excited for it it's just not the same as a console launch.
