There are a ton of ideas rolling around like this, the problem is the patents. Corporations like Sony, Nintendo and M$ all patent their ideas right away, even if they are not using them. It has become more and more of a problem as big industry has misused the patent process to stop competition or to suppress certain technology.

The famous story is of the guy who created a carburetor that could potential get incredible fuel mileage who's patent was bought by a very rich oil company that suppressed the information.

In regards to Kinect and full body motion...they are going to need some sort of peripherals to take full advantage of it. It's like the controller with out the rumble. That added touch/feel makes all the difference in the world.
