Leaked Natal launch details “not accurate”

The recently rumored £50 price point, 14 launch titles, and 5 million units at launch for Microsoft’s upcoming Project Natal “weren’t accurate,” Microsoft says. Commenting at the London launch of the 360’s new social features which launched yesterday, Xbox UK’s Neil Thompson said of the reports, “No. They weren’t accurate, they were rumours … We’re still very much in the baking on Natal and there’s a lot of things to get decided on it.”

Microsoft EMEA’s Chris Lewis didn’t say much more, “Now you know better than to listen to that stuff! We will announce in good time,” though he did share a few words on the promise of new experiences, “As you can imagine, we’ve shared this technology with our worldwide development partners now for some time, and the pace with which they’re developing the kind of experiences is just amazing. I’m not going to be specific about what they might be, I will say however we’re committed to ensure those experiences are unique, compelling and very exciting right from the outset. That has to happen and that will happen.”
