Ubisoft is No.1 third-party publisher on Kinect

Investment in new motion control tech pays off

Ubisoft has claimed it's the leading third party publisher of Kinect games for Xbox 360.

"We believed in the potential of Kinect from the start and we set out to be the leading third-party publisher," said Ubisoft's North American president, Laurent Detoc. "It worked. But this is only the beginning for us," he added, according to Gamasutra.


While the firm didn't disclose sales figures for its Kinect titles - Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, MotionSports and Fighters Uncaged - it said that it hopes to retain the No.1 position in 2011 with games like Child of Eden and Michael Jackson: The Experience.

Microsoft said earlier this month that it had shipped eight million Kinect units to retail and "far surpassed" five million sold to consumers in the motion sensing peripheral's first 60 days on the market.
