Dan Greenawalt = bogus.
Developers in the industry will decide whether Kinect is worth their time and support - as with any other piece of hardware. Adding Kinect support for games just for the sake of it will soak up a lot of R&D + engineering time, won't make gamers any happier and won't increase sales.
If Microsoft wants developers to support Kinect.....
1.) Carrot. Give developers an incentive to add Kinect support.
2.) Stick. Add a mandate in the T&Cs that requires Kinect support be added in every game.
Kinect's install base hardly matches the 360's. Some 360 owners are already calling for the next XBox to arrive. I don't see that it's worth any developer's time developing for Kinect now when any REASONABLY GOOD game would sell just as well without Kinect support . The ball is very much still in Microsoft's court.
