Project Natal‘s “world premiere” may be this coming June, but the company is yet to officially confirm when exactly the movement-sensing hardware might actually reach the market. Happily that’s all changed now, thanks to what seems to be an accidental announcement by Microsoft’s marketing manager for Saudi Arabia, Syed Bilal Tariq; he told GamerTagRadio that Natal’s release “is going to be somewhere in October”.

The exec went on to say that Microsoft would confirm the exact date during their E3 launch of the Natal hardware, which we’re expecting to be on June 13th. He certainly doesn’t seem to have any doubts about the release window either, saying “definitely it is going to be October 2010.”
