Natal out by fall of 2010

Game maker THQ's chief Brian Farrell recently corroborated last week's report that Microsoft's Project Natal body controller for the Xbox 360 will be out late in 2010. Speaking in a conference call regarding THQ's earnings report, Farrell said Natal from Microsoft is a "platform addition, coming late next year," when asked about market changes in the upcoming cycle.

Last week, hardware maker Aptina said it will supply its 1.3-megapixel image sensors for cameras used in the innovative games console interface, which will launch in the second half of 2010.

Project Natal is expected to be a part of a new, next-generation Xbox 360 that is also expected to reach stores sometime in 2010. The technology relies on cameras that track a user's movements and hand motions and before using them as the controls for a video game, thus replacing a conventional handheld controller.
