Looks like the Xbox 360's motion sensing add-on is already in the wild and, more importantly, in the hands of someone willing to grab spy shots of the thing and the Project Natal hardware set up guide.
While we're trained to ignore video game manuals, the Project Natal set up guide tells us a thing or two we didn't know about before, including that the camera accessory will require its own power source—at least in its pre-release incarnation—and include a "new motorized tilt mechanism."
"Do not manually tilt the sensor array on its base," warns the Natal quick start guide. "Doing so can damage the tilt mechanism." Sounds fretfully delicate.
We've contacted Microsoft to get confirmation that this early look at Natal is the real deal and find out more about the hardware specifications provided within. Multiplayer.it has more shots of the Natal demo unit, should you be curious.
