Posted in Bethesda, Project Natal, Xbox 360 with tags on May 20, 2010 by James Love

Bethseda developer Ashley Cheng has written on his blog that he believes Project Natal “seems wasted on games.”

Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq earlier announced that Natal would see an October release.
