Microsoft: Natal launch information is inaccurate

Tuesday, 17th November 2009 18:02 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


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.

    Hmmm, I’m inclined to believe the original report. All these guys are saying is that ‘we’ve not announced anything yet,’ they don’t deny it. And MCV are usually right about this kind of shit.

    Typical corporate bull shit. Does anybody have the balls or responsibility to guesstimate anymore?! “No comment”, that’s the typical, pussy-out of the entire corporate world.
