Leaked: Project Natal launch date november 2010

Xbox 360 controller-free motion-sensing camera to launch next fall with 14 games and 'impulse' pricing, claims biz site MCV.

Microsoft Project Natal to receive "impulse buy" RRP

Project Natal will be available worldwide November 2010, launch with 14 games, and sell for about 80 US dollars, according to games biz site MCV. Expect 5 million units for global ship at release, with at least two purchase configurations: As a solo upgrade, or bundled with the 360 console.

MCV cites sources with access to a secret tour Microsoft's been conducting to demonstrate Natal's technology to UK publishers and studios. Apparently the tour was designed to drum up developer support for the camera.

If $US80 sounds cheap, a publisher told MCV the company's trying to get it even lower, aiming for "impulse" territory that could drop to as little as 50 US dollars.

Microsoft unveiled Natal this summer at E3 in Los Angeles. The device uses various cameras and microphones to track player movement and audio, allowing for what the company calls a "controller-free" experience.

At the Tokyo Game Show last month, top-tier publishers and developers including Activision, Bethesda, Capcom, Disney, EA, Konami, MTV, Namco Bandai, Sega, Square Enix, THQ and Ubisoft committed to design games for the device.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
