A source close to Project Natal has told Eurogamer that any plans for a Xbox Natal are nonsense. The rumor came on Saturday when 1up had rumored that a new Xbox would be released specfically for Natal next year and would be seen as early as GDC next year.
Don’t believe nonsense on the internet is all I’ll say. We’ll do the right thing for Natal.
Meanwhile, Aaron Greenberg, who is product management head for Xbox, basically come and said no new console will be neccasary.
I think part of the excitement about this announcement is that in many ways we are delivering a next generation experience this generation. With that said, I can confirm that Natal will run on Xbox 360 so no new console investment will be necessary.
Consider that one killed.
