Project Natal "full line-up" at E3

"Very strong" software support pledged.

Microsoft plans to show "the full line-up" of Project Natal software at E3 in June.

That's according to Entertainment & Devices division CFO Mindy Mount, who told the Jefferies Annual Global Technology Conference (thanks IGN) to expect "very strong first and third-party developer support".

"Needless to say, we're putting some of our best people on coming up with great game ideas for this, and we're going to have some great stuff," Mount said.

"As a history, Microsoft works very strong with third-party developers, so we're hoping that we're going to get some great titles from that. You'll be able to see more news about that this summer at E3. We'll show you the full line-up."

Microsoft was caught showing Project Natal off to celebs and other "opinion formers" recently, but unfortunately the main opinion formed was that it was "not quite there yet", to quote TV presenter Jonathan Ross.

This led to lots of furious back-pedalling as PRs were forced to confirm that Woss and company had only seen last year's E3/gamescom demo of Ricochet, and had not seen any updated kit.

Microsoft Games Studios Europe boss Peter Molyneux subsequently expressed his dismay at having to use ageing demos, claiming that "countless revisions of cameras and countless revisions of software" had taken place since the demoed material was originally produced.
