Kinect is so *3000 and eight* and the competition is so *2000 and late* Kinect like a *HD flat* and what you got is so sad and whack. These articles prove haters were envious Microsoft so genius.

Kinect will sell very well with the tech world; so wanting this tech obviously initially angry this advanced tech was developed by MSFT and friends.

Booooom? bada Boom. Boom Boom Boom. Boom Boom POW

They hacking Kinect to make PC software, not PC games.

Nobody is envious of casual Xbox360 Kinect games. Kinect has no hardcore games.

@ Mystogan
lol, because Microsoft called them core games, you think they really are one? How are they played? Can you play first person shooters with Kinect?

Rise of Nightmares
Codename D
Projekt Drako
Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

Nope no core games at all, If you are a Ps3 only owner or a kinect hater .

With Google's involvement, only good things can come out of this open source and free version of Kinect.

Obviously. this will benefit PC users at the cost of hurting Microsoft. And I am sure that a price that PC users are willing for Microsoft to pay.

Good, wonder how long its going to take Microsoft to just release the drivers themselves lol.

Also to end the game debate that has nothing to do with this article at all except for bickering little 360 and Ps3 fanboys to fight. WAIT to see how games like Steel Battalion or Project Draco play. I will not be making judgments either way till I play them.
