I'm not happy to read that at all but it does give me a story idea!

Just caught this from Twitter:

rid-kinect-games-over-the-coming-18-months/



Using a combination of controllers (e.g. mouse+keyboard,
switches+head-tracker, joypad/joystick+footpedals) has been pretty staple
fair for PC gaming for a long time, with ways to configure versatile control
schemes to suit. When we see anything approaching that overall power for a
games console, that will be a happy day.



I wonder if older existing games could be set-up to play with the Kinect and
Joypad - with some way for the user to configure their preferred system?
That would be extremely nice, plus give extra life to older games.
