Xbox 360 Kinect does have a place in core gaming, Neil Thompson, Microsoft's Senior Regional Director, Northern Europe, Entertainment & Devices Division, has said.
"Kinect was obviously a big part of what we had to talk about in the last two days because it is a transformational thing," he explained. "It is going to change the way people interact with technology and how you get different types of people to interact with technology."
He added: "My view is gaming enthusiasts get enthusiastic around great innovative technology. A lot of the games we have for Kinect, although they're easy to get involved in and start playing, they also have some great depth we think the person that loves good deep rich gaming experiences will also enjoy. So as people get to know more about what these games have to offer they'll resonate more deeply with them than maybe they see at the moment."
