Kinect to head to the PC soon

You probably were not expecting this
A Korean developer  has let slip that Microsoft is about to allow its Kinect motion controller to be used on the PC soon. GamePrix recently released a multiplayer role playing game called Divine Souls for the PC, and the company claims that the game is "scheduled to support Kinect."

This is the first time that anyone has indicated that the Imperium was prepared to let anyone use its hands free gadget for anything other than the Xbox. A GamePrix employee called Jason Lim told IncGamers that "many game companies" are trying to apply to build games for Kinect on the PC.

Microsoft has not made any announcement like that. But with hackers  creating many unofficial applications for Kinect, some of which use a Windows PC, Redmond will have worked out that it can flog a lot more Kinects if it worked with Windows.
