If correct the price is higher than estimates

When details of Project Natal first surfaced for the Xbox 360, the motion control system sounded really cool. The big caveat for many gamers thought was what the price would be. Many rumors pointed to a price tag that would be in the $50 to $70 range.

A source has told 
Edge-online that when Project Natal lands it will be at a much higher price of $149. That price tag will reportedly put it at a higher price than Sony's Move tech that will sell with a game for under $100. 

The source also told the publication that the Natal camera tech would be bundled with the Xbox 360 Arcade system for $299. Pricing outside the U.S. would depend on factors like exchange rates. That October launch date that was leaked early this month has been further clarified as being set for October 26. The sources cited by 
Edge-online say that the launch date could move a few weeks in either direction.

The camera won't be called Natal and the official name will be unveiled at E3 next month.

I personally like my HD-DVD drive for my 360, despite HD-DVD losing all my movies still look and play great. And I can put the drive on my PC if I want to. I was just disappointed that MS didn't release a BR drive because I didn't want to have to buy a PS3 for BR (when the 60gb was still out with hardware PS2 support).

Uh, yeah? The HD-DVD drive is really silent and the fans of the 360 are nothing compared to the background noise of my regular house fan and my computer.

Add on to that the sounds of the filter and air pump for our 100 gallon fish tank (the air pump is really noisy and shouldn't be), and that would be our living room. Every once in a while in a wind storm the power gets knocked out and it's eerily quiet and I wish the rest of the fish would die so I didn't have to listen to their life support apparatus anymore.
