Microsoft organized a pre-E3 event to talk about Project Natal Kinect.

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

Rumors about Project Natal being christened Kinect started last month. Both Kotaku and Neowin got access to promotional material that confirmed the rumored name.

  • Joyride
  • Kinect Sports
  • Kinect Adventures
  • Dance Central
