When Project NATAL was announced at E3 2009, it got a lot of attention and some claimed that it overshadowed PS3’s announcement of its own motion controller.
Months down the road, the PS3 motion controller was named ‘MOVE’ a few months ago, while Microsoft did not make any name change to its product. But then again,surely we won’t expect it to be launched as ‘Project NATAL’. Anything branded with the word ‘Project’ seems to be a prototype of some sort.
So I’m not surprised that NATAL is going to be possibly renamed as ‘WAVE’ at E3 this year, but I’m curious as to how it arrived at that name.
One thing for sure, it’s going to be an exciting E3 in 2010.
