Microsoft Plans Project Natal 'World Premiere' This June

Microsoft Plans Project Natal 'World Premiere' This June

A year after it was first announced, Microsoft will fully unveil its Project Natal motion-sensing device for Xbox 360 this June during the E3 Expo in Los Angeles.

Microsoft is calling the event the "World Premiere" of its device, and is likely to roll out the first round of Natal games, a price range for the peripheral, and possibly a final name, as Sony did during its PlayStation Move press conference this month.

Microsoft has indicated "Project Natal" is merely a code name, and not necessarily the name under which the package will be marketed.

The event will be held on the evening of June 13 at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, with Microsoft's traditional press-only Media Briefing to be held at the Wiltern Theater the following morning.

Microsoft notified press of those two events in a brief email today. There was no information as to their content or length; the company has promised "details to follow."

Included in the email is a stylized timeline representing particularly notable events in the recipient's life, including "Your first day of school," "Your first crush," and the ambiguous "Your first victory." It culminates in "Your first look at the future of fun," presumably referring to the demonstration of Microsoft's new video game peripheral.
