Monthly XBLA Kinect Games on the Way
There hasn’t been much in the way of support for Kinect on Xbox Live Arcade. The Gunstringer was originally planned to be a Microsoft-published XBLA game that would have fit the bill, but it has since been converted into a full retail game. XBLA seems like a perfect place for Kinect games – you can try something new and unique using motion controls and charge a relatively small amount for the product. And yet, beyond the upcoming Fruit Ninja Kinect, there hasn’t been much there. Microsoft has plans to change that.
“Obviously we have Xbox Live Arcade exclusives running through the Summer of Arcade program, but yes, you can expect far more exclusives coming to the platform in future,” Xbox Live’s Robin Burrowes told CVG. “I can’t give you those names today – we’ll announce them in due course – but you have the trust factor of the legacy of titles we’ve launched in the past.
Burrowes, the Xbox Live product marketing manage for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, was speaking generally there, though Microsoft is explicitly targeting regular Kinect releases on XBLA, too. – 1up
