Just a few days after Microsoft said they would showcase Natal at Gamefest in February, a big-name publisher has stepped up to announce titles for the anticipated motion controller. Ubisoft has promised to release 10 Natal-friendly titles within six months of the accessory's debut. That could mean the games won't arrive until 2011, if Microsoft launches Natal in November of next year as rumored.
Ubisoft is working on at least four or five titles for the PS3 motion controller, as well. It isn't known if the titles will come from the same pool as the Xbox 360, but Ubisoft did indicate the games will primarily fall into the "casual" category. This suggests that they are unlikely to fit into the developer's larger franchises, such as Splinter Cell or Assassin's Creed, and most of the titles will come from new property.
With at least fifteen motion-sensing games planned, Ubisoft has a lot of faith in the emerging technology. Will other developers follow suit?
