VG247 has just been informed by an inside source close to Natal/Kinect that there will be two version of the camera controller when it hits the market.

The most expensive one will run you $189.00.

If you recall, there was a story a while back that the camera in Natal had been “dumbed down” a bit in order to make it cheaper. Then there was a report back in March stating that there was a “second version of the camera” being worked on – so all this makes a bit more sense now, if there really are two versions.

We’ve been told by our source that Microsoft replaced the original version with one that includes the tilt option, which¬† is controlled by a motor on the base – which has been known for a bit now.

Kinect was outed as the name of the motion controller earlier by an Italian advert, followed by a a Danish price listing as well and then USA Today.

Pat is heading to the Natal event as we speak, hopefully we will know more soon.
