The rumor mill has been buzzing with a potential release date and price tag for Microsoft's mysterious new gaming console: Project Natal. Announced at E3 this past summer, there haven't been many definite details announced so far, but we think there is potential for natural interaction gaming systems. You won't be able to see it on shelves until the next holiday season, but based on a report from UK games mag MCV, everyone's pointing towards a November 2010 release date.

There's a debate over the price, however, as several outlets (MTV, CNET, Stage Select) are reporting that it could sell for as low as $50 (sounds too good to be true, but maybe Microsoft will get desperate) whereas others (Gadget Reviet, PC World) predict it might be somewhere closer to $80. Think you might pick one of these up once they're finally available?
