Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft’s Entertainment & Devices Division, gets into the action while demonstrating Project Natal.

Project Natal will be available this year, in time for the holiday 2010 shopping season. “Now, we've made tremendous progress on the product since then, and we've been hard at work to ensure our third party developers can create their Project Natal ready games. I can now tell all of you that Project Natal will be available this holiday 2010,” Bach stated. “This holiday 2010 you'll be able to bring home Project Natal, which will work with your existing Xbox 360 console. This holiday 2010 you'll be able to experience an entirely new, yet completely natural way to play. The holiday 2010 release of Project Natal will come exactly one decade after the first Xbox console hit the shelves in the holiday season of 2000.” “Project Natal is the code name for an Xbox 360 add-on that incorporates face, voice, gesture, and object recognition technology to give users a variety of ways to interact with the console, all without needing a controller.”
