With Kinect launching next week, Microsoft is everywhere talking about it (it even recently showed up on Oprah, among other daytime TV shows). Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business boss Aaron Greenberg recently discussed, among other things, the subject of Kinect's launch games and how they will sell well even if they don't receive high scores from reviewers.
Asked about the importance of review scores for Kinect's slate of launch games, Greenberg told Eurogamer, "I don't know. For us, these are different types of titles and experiences than maybe some of the games traditionally that are targeted to the core market. So the correlation between a review score for Halo: Reach and sales is very high, but Kinect Sports is more about just having fun.
