MS researching Natal 2

MS researching Natal 2 already

Project Natal may not be in shops yet, but creator Microsoft is already thinking about "a second version".

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald (spotted by VG247), Hsiao-Wuen Hon - managing director at MS Research Asia - said investing heavily in research allowed flexibility to look towards and plan for the future this far in advance.

"And when we do invent something first like the Natal kind of scenario, while we have a researcher working with the product group for the first version, we already have a researcher thinking about the second version down the road so we certainly hope we will continue to be holding that technology," he said. "I really love what Microsoft is doing."

Yeah, I read an article awhile back about Nintendo and it's next console.  Appears they pretty much already have that one basically done, but will not release it untill all potential has been tapped from the Wii, which they said it hasn't been close to being tapped.  In other words, We have something you'll want, it's better, but we're not letting you have it until you buy up all our current stuff  :)
