In an interview with Saudi television, Microsoft Saudi Arabia marketing guy Syed Bilal Tariq has given a release date for Microsoft’s motion controller, Project Natal.
That’s right, Microsoft Saudi Arabia.
“Project Natal will be launched in Saudi Arabia on the same date it will be launched in the world,” said Tariq. “That is going to be somewhere in October. We will be in a position to confirm the date after E3, which is in June. But definitely the date is going to be in October 2010.”
As of press time, US Microsoft representatives have not responded to our requests for an official comment, we will update this post if we hear anything. Other than that make sure to stay tuned to Fanboygaming.com for more information on Project Natal next month, during E3 2010 in Los Angeles, CA.
About: Project Natal will turn you into the controller for games and entertainment, and it will work with every Xbox 360*.

You are the controller. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Project NatalÃ¢â‚¬Â provides a whole new way to play. It uses a sensor to track your body movement and recognize your face, even listen to your voice. If you know how to move your hands, shake your hips, or speak, you and your friends will be able to jump instantly into any Ã¢â‚¬Å“Project NatalÃ¢â‚¬Â experience. Personalized play Project Natal provides an all new in-game experience in which the playerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s face and voice are amazingly recognized. Greet and speak to characters in the game, or just simply step into view of the sensor to log in.
