Project Natal gets a new name

Project Natal's proper name has been leaked and we've decided to take credit for the new moniker.

THINQ has been describing Microsoft's camera-based, controllerless controller as a 'Wave-your-hands-in-the-air-like-you-just-don't-care' device for months now, and it looks like the marketing bods at Microsoft have taken notice.

They may have shortened our suggested name somewhat - no doubt so that it will fit on the box - to a slightly more succinct, 'Wave', according the folks at Nowgamer, who completely failed to credit us with coming up with the idea.

The XBox controller is set to be officially announced at E3 next month alongside Sony's own motion sensing gizmo, Move.
