Microsoft Trying To Upstage E3?

Word is out that the Microsoft’s new controller for the Xbox 360 will be showcased in June.

First touted at E3 last year, Microsoft’s Natal game controller, which if it operates as the manufacturer claims it will, is getting its first public outing on June 13 in Los Angeles, the day before E3 starts.

Using cameras that will follow the a gamer’s every movement, a lot of gaming journos were blown away by its potential when a prototype was displayed at E3. Designed to take some marketshare from Nintendo’s Wiimote, as there is no actual controller needed.

Sony’s Move controller is a similar device, but there has been no definite date given for its release, but we’re guessing it’s going to be pretty soon.
