Kinect to Invade PC Systems
Well. Apparently some box or another was recently revealed, and there's been a big load of hoo-ha over it, but I daresay we lot weren't fazed much. However, it doesn't seem to have simply stopped at the consoles - Kinect is coming to the PCs. Apparently, it will be named Kinect One, a stupid name I feel, similar to a similarly stupid name I heard recently, and it will be better than its predecessor, which is not a great feat by any means.
According to Ben Kilgore, VP of Microsoft interactive entertainment, a Kinect upgrade to the PCs will be incoming at "some point down the line, yeah." So. Not exactly enthusiastic - but then I guess I have been driven slightly cynical.
From an objective point of view, this is actually quite a good move on the part of Microsoft, and actually an exciting venture for the PC. After all, motion control with Oculus Rift? Sign me up anytime. Let's just hope that it all goes well.
