E3 2010: Xbox Kinect and redesigned 360 revealed

A flurry of web reports and leaks tonight have confirmed that Microsoft has renamed Natal to Kinect – and that it will unveil a redesigned 360 at E3 this week.

Earlier this evening an Italian ad on a consumer games site outed the new look 360 (pictured) and claimed the device, with wi-fi as standard and 250GB storage, is compatible with ‘Kinect’.

USA Today has since confirmed the name as the new moniker for Project Natal, the 3D camera motion-sensor unveiled at last year’s E3 in Los Angeles.

And that’s not all – other reports are suggesting Kinect will launch in two flavours, including a high-end $189 dollar version.
