October for Project Natal Leaks BBC Broadcaster
Controversial soon-to-be-ex-BBC presenter, Jonathan Ross, has probably made several Microsoft PR and marketing executives facepalm this morning by leaking an October release date for Project Natal.

Ross tweeted the following have been playing with the body-controller in a Microsoft controlled environment in London yesterday.

"OK. Before bed. Natal on X Box impressive. Not quite there yet i think but tye have til october and if they get it right...skys the limit."

We're already aware that Natal will be available for the Xmas buying season, so the October date does not seem outlandish. It seems, however, that the concept of 'Non Disclosure Agreement' is, at least if you're Jonathan Ross.

Its just an HD Eyetoy but with extra features, whats the big amazement about Natal?

Nice to see how Natal totally followed all of his body movements, in that video, especially the bit where he jumped up in the air and did the breakdancing move...

@Tamikaze What extra features does it have? Looks exactly like EyeToy to me.

Doesn't it have a mic of some sort? to be honest, i have no idea what Natal is apart from it being an Eyetoy, i expected it to have something else as well.
