Now whos saying consoles are good for nothing? :laugh:

Im interested to see if we can get some nice applications for this device. Id love to try just using it instead of a mouse for a laugh. Windows 8 with its dodgy tablet UI might be good to use with Kinect. Shouting at my Kinect to pause a movie or something might be interesting.

I can see indy developers having a right crack at using Kinect or maybe Kinect enabled multi platform games for 360 will show up on PC with support. I think Mass Effect 3 has some sort of support for it so the PC version might end up with support.

Well at least the robot being controlled through Kinect (and a PC) would no longer be done through "hacks" but through an official SDK then. I only remembered it now (and not when I last posted in this thread LOL :laugh:).
