He added: ""We will be in a position to confirm the date after E3, which is in June. But definitely, it is going to be October 2010 - and we will have it in Saudi Arabia for sure."

So expect full confirmation next month - but it's going to be October.

CVG has previously rumoured the October launch date - after spotting a Natal Yoga game due for release in the month.

Microsoft product boss Aaron Greenberg has previously confirmed to CVG that Microsoft sees a five-year lifespan for the tech.
