The Natal launch, “is going to be somewhere in October and we will be in a position to confirm the date at E3, which is in June, but definitely it is going to be October 2010″ said Microsoft’s Saudi marketing man.

Though the pre-Christmas launch comes as no surprise, this is the first time it has been confirmed by a Microsoft executive.

It’s worth remembering that Project Natal is still only a codename for the device, set to go head-to-head with the Wii and Playstation 3 Move controller. Come June and E3 it may be called something completely different.

Any ideas folks? Answers on a postcard!
