    Microsoft unveils new controller

    Microsoft has unveiled its new control system for the Xbox 360 console, at E3 in Los Angeles.

    Project Natal is a fully hands-free control system that will use face recognition and motion sensors to allow users to play games.

    Film director Steven Spielberg, attending the launch, said it was "a window into what the future holds".

    Although still in the early stages, Microsoft has sent prototypes to all the main game developers.

    Speaking to the BBC, Mr Spielberg said he had always stated that "the main barrier stopping people getting into video games was the complexity of a games controller," and that Natal was "a whole new world".

    "There is technology now that recognises not just your thumb, it recognises your entire person. The technology knows who you are," he said.
