Oops! It looks like USA Today jumped the gun on the announcement and has since pulled the piece
from its site. Stay tuned for Microsoft's official unveiling later.
Just when Joy Ride
seemed kaput, it's been confirmed as a title for Microsoft's Kinect
(the official name of Project Natal). The social racer was recently removed from Xbox.com, though Microsoft assured us
that "BigPark's vision" was still slated for 2010. Apparently BigPark's vision involves adding Kinect motion controls, with USA Today
revealing that the game will have players "hold an imaginary steering wheel" and use their bodies "to execute jumps and tricks." No further details were given, though it seems likely we'll hear more as E3 builds up steam later this week.
