Finally, Microsoft decided to remove the codename off their camera system, Project Natal. Natal will now be called Kinect. It just got patented so we should expect the announcement tonight or tomorrow during Microsoft’s E3 conference.

Confirmed List of Natal/Kinect games:
•Kinectimals – lets you train and play with 20 different virtual cats, including a lion, cheetah and tiger.
•Joyride – a racing game, lets players use their hands to hold an imaginary steering wheel — pull your hands toward you and push back out for an acceleration boost — and their bodies to execute jumps and tricks.
•Kinect Sports has six activities including boxing, bowling, beach volleyball, track and field, soccer and table tennis. To serve a volleyball, you mimic the real motion; in soccer, you can kick the ball or do a header.
•Kinect Adventures includes a river-raft time trial and obstacle course, playable by up to four players. On the raft, playing as a duo, you and a partner must lean one way or another to steer. Jumping helps the raft reach special areas for extra points.
•Dance Central, in development by MTV Games, brings a So You Think You Can Dance experience home.
