Video or photography not allowed at MS Natal E3 event [Update]

Update: Microsoft’s just sent VG247 a statement on the matter. It reads:

“No, this event is a “technology free” event designed for you to come and enjoy yourself.  Please leave your technology at home, no photography or video allowed.  Visual assets will be provided following the event.”

Original: Anyone hoping for a live-stream of Microsoft’s pre-E3 event on Project Natal? You’re getting nada.

The firm’s sent out invites for press attending the event, but MS is keen to promote the show as a “technology-free” event, saying that no video or photography will be allowed at the event.

It now means the company’s main presser the night after the Natal event, which takes place on June 14 from 10am PST (6pm BST), will most likely be when we get to see a major blowout on the motion camera.

It also brings up concerns on the latency of the tech, which has come into serious doubt since Gamescom last August in Cologne, when it was shown off at the event to journalists.

Thanks, GI.
