Microsoft: Natal launch information is inaccurate

Microsoft has responded to last week’s Natal information which was leaked from a “behind-closed-doors tour of UK publishers and studios”.

This information, according to Xbox UK bossman Neil Thompson is not “accurate” and nothing more than “rumors”.

“I’ve got nothing more to say about it”, he told “We’re still very much in the baking on Natal and there’s a lot of things to get decided on it.”

“Now you know better than to listen to that stuff,” said Microsoft Europe’s Chris Lewis. “We will announce in good time. As you can imagine, we’ve shared this technology with our worldwide development partners now for some time, and the pace with which they’re developing the kind of experiences is just amazing.

“I’m not going to be specific about what they might be, I will say however we’re committed to ensure those experiences are unique, compelling and very exciting right from the outset. That has to happen and that will happen.”

It was revealed last week by a source close to MCV that Natal would release during November 2010 with 14 launch games at a price point of £50 or for as little as £30.
