Project Natal and the Sony Wiimote have been with developers for a while, and the world waits with a mixture of anticipation and dread for the unique games (as well as horrible shovelware) that the "new" technology will bring to Xbox 360 and PS3 users. Sega looks like it'll be among the first to announce motion control games for these systems, hoping to reveal the fruits of its labor early next year.

"We'd like to think that in early 2010 we'll be making announcements about both of those platforms," offers Sega boss Mike Hayes. "We have our ideas and we know what we want to do, but the technology is pretty new, particularly with Natal, so we've got to get to grips with the technology and see if it can do what we want it do.

"I kind of think of it as the land of bunsen burners and test tubes."

I can't wait for the inevitable bad Sonic the Hedgehog game that's going to be announced next year. It's going to be like clockwork.
