According to recent findings by Skoar!, Microsoft has registered several patents for a third-person game using camera control, which we assume to be using Project Natal.

The patent seems to be going for a first- or third-person standpoint for the game with references to the 2003 Xbox game, Brute Force in the patent.

    Microsoft’s director of policy and enforcement for Xbox LiveĀ  Stephen Toulouse has said that he believes Kinect is the perfect name for the motion device previously known as Project Natal.
