Microsoft readies five million Natal units for launch

UK gaming site MCV has published the first details of Microsoft’s Project Natal controller for the Xbox 360.

Sources say the innovative gaming controller will be released next November and Microsoft is gearing up to have five million devices ready at launch at a lower than expected price of around $50, along with at least 14 games.

The Natal concept, which uses cameras and microphones to track player movements, was revealed at E3 in Los Angeles earlier in the year.

Activision, Bethesda, Capcom, Disney, EA, Konami, MTV, Namco Bandai, Sega, Square Enix, THQ and Ubisoft announced they would be providing Natal-capable games at the Tokyo Game Show in October.
