Microsoft Announces "Game Room," Confirms Natal For Late 2010

Microsoft has confirmed that their upcoming motion-control system, Natal, will be released during the 2010 holiday season. The announcement was made during CES, alongside news of “Game Room,” a service that will act like a virtual arcade, bringing classic games to users of the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows Live. It’s due out this spring with 30 games to start, and will gradually ramp up to over a thousand titles. According to Kotaku, “You can buy a game for between 240-400 Microsoft Points, or if you really want that old arcade feeling, you can pay 40 Microsoft Points and play the game once, like it was 1985 and you’d just dropped a quarter.” Another interesting bit of news is that subscribers to AT&T’s U-Verse will soon be able to use the Xbox 360 as their set-top box.
