Microsoft’s much anticipated, very hyped, and perhaps flop-waiting-in-the-wings, Project Natal, is coming in time for the Christmas shopping cycle, and will work the Xbox that you already have.

What else is there to say, it is coming, and we are all going to test it out. The most important news is the all-important backwards compatibility that is so often forgotten by hardware developers.

Microsoft said that it was working with gaming developers already, so the device will be launching with a suite of enabled games. Look for more information to be forthcoming in the coming months.
