Natal could replace remote control, according to comments made by Xbox Live general manager Marc Whitten.

Speaking at the Streaming Media West show, Whitten described the increasing number of 360’s video applications as the “biggest surprise” of his job.

“With the flick of my wrist I can change a channel,” Whitten said. “With the power of my voice I can start a movie.”

He added: “I don’t believe we are currently in the golden age of the television or the golden age of the game console or the golden age of the Internet; frankly, five years from now I don’t know that you’ll be able to tell the difference between those worlds.”

Natal expected at the end of next year. First contact should happen in 2011. More on GI.
