We were promised that it would be an add-on and cheaper than $50 but if speculation has it, Microsoft are ready to burn a hole through our eager pockets by launching Project Natal, 26th of this October, at $149! That makes its much more expensive than its direct rival, Sony's PlayStation Move which is set to be released around the same time at less than $100. It's like buying another Xbox altogether!
Microsoft is aiming at the market Wii gulped so well - the casual gamers. While we can surely expect better graphics than the Nintendo Wii, we would only be able to compare the performance and ease-of-play after the Natal is showcased at this E3. Though Project Natal has caused much stir for long now, the final name of the 'twin-camera motion sensor' might not be Natal, but something altogether different. This and the unjust price would surely be confirmed at the E3 next month.
