Xbox boss Robbie Bach’s told an audience at a Microsoft’s Open House event in New York yesterday that Natal will get cheaper as it moves on in life.

“Relative to Natal, we’ll see how the pricing cost works out,” he said.

“But people should except that it will go through the usual price curve.”

In addition, Bach refused to be drawn on whether or not Natal will be the motion-sensing system’s final name.

Asked when we’ll be able to stop referring to the device by its code name, Bach said, “When we tell you to call it something else.”

Natal’s expected towards the end of next year. Thanks, Variety.
