Microsoft Officially Dates Kinect For PC

Posted on January 10, 2012 AT 06:16am

THE BUZZ: Microsoft announced at the Consumer Electronics Show yesterday that an official PC version of Kinect will be hitting stores next month.

The new iteration will launch February 1, priced at $250. It was also mentioned that the company is currently working with 200 different partners to bring various applications to Kinect on PC.

EGM’s TAKE: This is a logical move by Microsoft considering the number of users who have modded Kinect to work with PC already. But is it a mass market product? Perhaps, if people don’t have to be eight feet from their screens.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
