The Gamefest 2010 Conference US and UK content (presentations and audio where available) is now available on Microsoft downloads, and the website has been updated with a complete index of talks (US UK). All of the Project Natal material is of course confidential and is only available to those with an Xbox 360 Developer account, but the majority of the other talks are public as usual.
