Well the reason the event is so technology shy is because they've only gone and got Cirque du Soleil to perform their circus acrobatics for us.
Earlier in May they issued a little confusing press release for the special Sunday event for Project Natal, telling press to "leave your technology at home, no photography or video allowed," which is rather an odd request for something all about fancy tech.
Now we know why - Microsoft has enlisted the talents of Canada's Cirque du Soleil, who love to put on crazy shows mixing circus and acrobatic antics. The day after, when E3 2010 starts, the platform holder is expected to name, date and price Natal.
It's certainly going to be a memorable occasion, despite no photography.
