Kinect to be as much a part of the 360 as Xbox Live says Microsoft
Microsoft has voiced their high hopes for Kinect at a launch event this week in San Francisco.
Speaking at the event, Microsoft's Phil Spencer said that they hope that Kinect will grow into an integral part of the Xbox 360 experience.
Spencer began: "Well we view Kinect as a fundamental part of the platform. It is as core to the platform as Live is. We think about the all products in our pipeline, including things that haven't been announced. And just like there's an (internet) pipe connected to the dev kits, there's a camera connected to the dev kits. So you think about those dev kits and those teams and that creative space, and how they want to add to that experience."
"I think over time for first party, you're not going to see that differentiation between 'Is that a Kinect game?' and 'Is that not a Kinect game?' You're just going to think about these things as 360 games. Now that doesn't mean there's no controller included. This is just like Live, since Live is used in many different ways across many different experiences that we build," added Spencer.
