MS: Kinect focus 'is on Xbox 360 right now'

Platform holder responds to Balmer PC Kinect quotes

Microsoft has responded to comments made by CEO Steve Balmer that the company could support Kinect on PC at "the right time".

A Microsoft spokesperson told CVG: "It's easy to imagine the many ways Kinect could be used for different applications and Microsoft is uniquely positioned to offer that. Right now our focus with Kinect is transforming games and entertainment on Xbox 360".


Last week, asked if Kinect for PC featured in the company's plans, Ballmer told the BBC: "We'll support that in a formal way, in the right time, and when we've got an announcement to make we'll make it."

Microsoft has said it's shipped eight million Xbox 360 Kinect units to retail and "far surpassed" five million sold to consumers in the motion sensing peripheral's first 60 days on the market.
