Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has said that more news regarding Natal will be announced at E3 – maybe even the actual name of the peripheral.

Speaking with Joystiq during X10, Greenberg said that the device was still currently in codename status, and games for it will be considered an entirely new category.

“I would say to expect us to share a news around E3 time,” he said. “But right now, we’re obviously in a codename status. We just unveiled this thing about seven months ago at E3, so it’s an entirely new category of games and entertainment.

“We are still in codename status, and we haven’t shown any of the actual games. There’s a lot more to share.

“We’ll have more stuff at E3, more stuff at holiday — but a pretty good start to what we think will be our biggest year that we’ve ever had.”

Greenberg expects it to be in “millions of homes” this holiday season, so hopefully,  it will stay “Natal” because that’s what we have all grow accustomed to,

Also during the X10 event, Molyneux revealed that Fable III would not have as much Natal support as previously thought, as the game is more controller based, but still contains some Natal elements – although he would not elaborate on what exactly.

So, who knows what sorts of goodies we can expect from the controller upon release. Come on E3!
