i'll tell you why..although MS will initially depend on their existing fanbase to support Natal, if MS is indeed going after the 60% who "never" play games, why would they have a new consumer have to learn what is a 360 AND Natal? in order to limit consumer confusion, they will put the technology under one brand..just because MS told its current fanbase that Natal will work with every 360 doesn't mean that Natal won't be a new brand altogether. Nintendo relied on Gamecube owners for initial Wii/Zelda sales
