Project Natal Will Have 5 Year Life Span

Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has said that upcoming motion controller tech, Project Natal will have a 5 year lifespan according to the company:
“The richness of the technology is going to really enable experiences that never had existed before. And we’re not just speaking about what we’re doing this year, but I think two, three, four, five years from now as this evolves.”
Greenberg also tried to tread on any comparisons to Sony's EyeToy:
“We obviously could have done a motion controller if we’d have wanted to do that, but we felt that would be a much more interruptive experience. We had an opportunity here to really do something that’s transformative and brings a whole new category of experiences to life."
“Now we’re saying to creators: ‘We can see when you move your hand, when you move your feet, we can track your body. I can stand in front of this sensor and it can recognise my face and know if it’s me, or my brother or my sister.”
We're looking forward to it and we'll get to see for ourselves this holiday.
