Xbox super-boss Shane Kim’s told GI that Project Natal, the camera-based 360 control system aired for the first time at E3 last week, is going to change games completely. And possibly save the world.

“If we’d just come out with something that looks and feels like the Nintendo Wiimote, I think you could have fairly criticised us and said it was derivative. That’s not the path we wanted to go down,” he said, speaking in LA.

“We could have done that, but we wanted to reinvent the industry and revolutionise home entertainment. That’s what we will achieve with Project Natal.”
