Xbox’s Project Natal: Estimated revenue from release for 2-years

Xbox 360 users all hope that Microsoft release its new motion-sensitive video-game control system, which we know as Project Natal soon. Investor could also be hoping the same thing, as Sarah Friar and Derek Bingham of Goldman Sachs has issued a projected forecast of the systems revenue for the next two-years.

According to Tech Flash, the analysts expect Project Natal to sell for $85 and could increase Microsoft’s revenue by $1.7 billion in 2011 and $2.3 billion in 2010. If these figures are correct, then Microsoft will be eager to launch the motion-sensing camera soon to start competing with the likes of the Nintendo Wii.

In 2009, the entire Microsoft Company earned $58.4 billion, only $3 billion of that was from its online services. We are not certain how the analysts came up with the projected sales figures; it could have something to do with how popular the same format has been for Nintendo.

However, Microsoft will have to hope that existing Xbox 360 owners will want to get the new motion-sensor camera, although serious gamers will want nothing to do with the system, as it will be just another gimmick.

The Nintendo Wii is a gaming system aimed solely at the family audience, the Xbox 360 is for the hardcore gamer, so how will Microsoft be able to change that? Well that is the $64,000 question.
