Launch Alert: According to a source from the UK’s MCV, Project Natal is shipping in November 2010 with 14 games and it’s supposed to be under $80. Apparently, Microsoft will be manufacturing 5 million of its controller-free Natals for a worldwide launch in the fall of 2010, supposedly November. Some of those Natals will be standalone but other will be part of a Xbox 360 bundle.  Microsoft’s Project Natal details have emerged following behind-closed-door Microsoft tour of UK publishers and studios. There price details are still a little shady, some sources say the Natal will be retailing for $80, while others bet on a lower “impulse-buy” price point of $50.

Helldivers 2 isn’t on Xbox, but these Game Pass titles can help fill the void
A soldier in silhouette in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 is a PlayStation console exclusive, so it's not available on Xbox Series X or S. Not only has Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer voiced his disappointment in this, but so have many Helldivers 2 players, who are asking for more backup in the fight against the Terminids and Automatons.

If you don't own a PS5 or a good enough gaming PC to run Helldivers 2, you might be feeling a bit left out. But if you're in the mood for a sci-fi or co-op game, there are plenty of entertaining alternate options available on Xbox Game Pass. While Xbox players can't yet die for Super Earth, they can still have a great time fighting and dying in any of these Xbox Game Pass games that are playable on console.
