And sorry Tumbler, I disagree, $149 is definitely too expensive when you're trying to introduce a competing peripheral into an entrenched market.

I'm interested at $150, and I'm assuming there will be plenty of E3 coverage to get my fiancee interested. I think MS was really smart to show this as a way to control the console and not just as a tool for video games. I payed over $200 for the newest programmable remote from logitech, color touch screen lcd, controls all my stuff from one remote, and that is just a remote... Natal seems to cover a wider area than just playing games. If they integrate it into the OS and make it something that you can use on facebook easily or just to video chat with others in some way.

They already have those avatars to play with, imagine if they setup a chat room where the camera would just map your avatar moving around and you could stand in front of the tv talking to other people, or just sit on the couch.

It's all going to come down to software, if MS has done their homework they'll have something more than a gaming peripheral and that is what is exciting about natal. If it's just a tool to make bowling more fun then $150 is definitely too much.
