Kaz Hirai confirmed that it’s coming Spring 2010. I guess it’s going to be called “The Magic Wand”. Kind of a boring name, ah well. The technology is great. But that’s nothing without fun games to go with it.
“We are slating it for spring of next year,” he told The Times. “One of the things is that we just don’t want to put out the controller. We need a great software that supports the controller at launch. It’s something that we’ve been working on for the longest time.”
That’s understandable, but don’t delay it for to long either. I’m sure Micrsosoft will release Natal before Sony releases the “The Magic Wand”. I wonder what the pricing will be like. Since you’ll need a controller and a PlayStation Eye. Hopefully you’ll be able to buy it separate and not forced to buy a bundle. That bugged me in the EyeToy days.
