Well on one hand I like the Kinect stuff since there really hasn't been anything for the system to play. However, I hope that maybe they'll still get a core game or two in there this year.

they sold a shitload of kinects with no games, so of course they're going in heavy this year. They punted the ball on doing anything interesting with "core" first party titles, so eat up more Halo, Forza, and Fable. It's really a 3rd party console anyways. So hopefully there's surprises there. I couldn't give less of a shit about more Gears or CoD.

At least they have XBLA, and they've been doing great with that platform.

A new team in IEB is developing innovative technology and services that will be used by Kinect enabled titles.

Help create a new community site centered around Kinect developers and users.

Shadow Complex 2 is what I want to see more than anything from MS this year... well, aside from Banjo Threeie, but I'm trying to be realistic. I'm just not interested in Microsoft's IP at the moment.

I'm not expecting much after last year, and I'm concerned that they've put too much focus on Kinect. Frontier's game could be interesting, but I really can't see it working without M+KB.

Oh, and Lionhead's game had better damn well be Black & White 3.

Thanks to a NeoGAF poster, Kinect Object recognition/scanning, auto-character creation from a body scan and interactive story books were rumoured, and then somewhat given credence in a Microsoft patent recently made public. Though perhaps the evidence is too weak to be worth mentioning.

It's what they have to do in order to get the adoption rate up. They are serious it seems about pushing it. I'm still somewhat surprise they are going all the way. It's what Sony (wish they had) should have done with Move and what Nintendo should have done with Motion Plus.
