Natal coming in late October for £120

Microsoft's eagerly--anticipated Project Natal motion-sensing controller will hit the UK at around the £120 mark, according to rumours doing the rounds this morning.

Edge Online says that a trusted source has revealed that the wave-your-hands-in-the-air-like-you-just-don't-care controllerless controller will have a US price tag of $149 or be bundled with an Xbox 360 Arcade console for $300.

At current exchange rates, and adding VAT, we reckon that will translate to around £120 once the camera-based device hits the UK, far higher than the widely-predicted £50 price.

The source also said that the controller definitely won't be called Natal, and that the actual name would be announced at E3 next month.
