E3 2010 Microsoft To Unveil Full Natal Lineup

March 8, 2010 - Speaking this morning at the Jefferies Annual Global Technology Conference in New York City, Mindy Mount, Microsoft’s Chief Financial Officer of its Entertainment & Devices Division, talked briefly about Project Natal, Xbox 360’s controller-less motion camera due out this fall.

Mount said the company has put its best designers in charge of coming up with ideas for the platform.

"We have very strong first and third-party developer support for [Natal], she said. "Needless to say, we’re putting some of our best people on coming up with great game ideas for this, and we’re going to have some great stuff."

During last year’s Tokyo Game Show, Microsoft published a list of developers "actively working" on Natal-based titles, which includes Bethesda, Electronic Arts, and Square-Enix. And as recently as January, the list has grown to over 70 percent of total game publishers worldwide.

"It’s part of the reason that we announced [Natal] as early as last summer so that we’d have time to get kits out and get the entire game developer community developing games for it."

Mount also said the company expects to show gamers its full lineup of Natal games at this year’s E3 event in Los Angeles.

"As a history, Microsoft works very strong with third-party developers, so we’re hoping that we’re going to get some great titles from that," she said. "You’ll be able to see more news about that this summer at E3. We’ll show you the full lineup."

Fable III, Microsoft’s exclusive Xbox 360 title set for release this fall, is the only major title confirmed to support Natal so far. The company’s other big title this year, Halo: Reach, will not utilize Natal at all, developer Bungie confirmed.
