New name for Natal

In an interview with website GamertagRadio, Tariq was asked when Natal would be available, to which he replied that the device would be launched in Saudi Arabia on the same day as the rest of the world: at some point in October.

The Natal launch, “is going to be somewhere in October and we will be in a position to confirm the date at E3, which is in June, but definitely it is going to be October 2010” said the Microsoft marketing man.

It was suspected that Natal would be on shelves in time for Christmas, but this is the first official confirmation from Microsoft.

We expect to hear a lot more about plans for new Xbox 360/Natal hardware bundles at E3 in June.

Project Natal is still a codename for the device, so the final public name should also be announced by Microsoft at E3. Speculation as to what that moniker might be begins right here!
