Natal out "late next year"

THQ boss blabs date for Xbox motion cam

Xbox 360's Project Natal motion cam will be out "late next year", according to THQ boss Brian Farrell.

The claim came from a THQ earnings call last night, where Farrell - who we're assuming knows what he's talking about, considering he's making games for the thing - said we'll have the 360 motion peripheral in time for next Christmas.

Officially Microsoft's not said anything about Natal's launch date, though top man Steve Balmer blabbed that we'll be seeing it sometime next year, before withdrawing his comments.

Speaking at E3 last month, Xbox strategy man Shane Kim claimed Natal's launch will be as big as Xbox 360's. "Conceptually, the launch of Natal will be like the launch of Xbox 360," he said. "It's going to be that big. We're not just going to ship it when the hardware and software are ready."
