Project Natal in October, says MS Saudi Manager


Speaking in an interview, Microsoft Saudi's Marketing Manager International Man of Mystery, Syed Bilal Tariq, has confirmed that Project Natal will be releasing worldwide sometime in October. 

Not surprising in the least, mind you. October is a long enough window from Christmas to build the hype for big sales in the holiday season and I think they're going to have to market the hell out of this thing to get the results necessary to make the new motion peripheral a success.

Tariq goes on to say that more information will be coming at E3, which we're all well aware of by this point. Do you think maybe they'll be ready to give the thing its actual name? Maybe? Natal isn't all that bad, but they could certainly do better.

(Update: Turns out that Tariq does not work for Microsoft but for one of their 3rd-party vendors. The information may still be correct but, clearly, this paints things in a much more speculative light.)
