In case you were under any illusion that Microsoft’s E3 this year was going to be light on Natal, consider it shattered: you’re going to see more than your fair share.
“We have very strong first and third-party developer support for [Natal]. Needless to say, we’re putting some of our best people on coming up with great game ideas for this, and we’re going to have some great stuff,” said Microsoft CFO Mindy Mount, speaking at the Jefferies Annual Global Technology Conference in New York today.
“As a history, Microsoft works very strong with third-party developers, so we’re hoping that we’re going to get some great titles from that. You’ll be able to see more news about that this summer at E3. We’ll show you the full line-up.”
Microsoft said in January that 70 percent of the world’s publishers are currently working on Natal products.
Natal, Microsoft’s 360 motion-sensing system, will release in October, if Jonathan Ross is to be believed.
