MS insisting on Kinect support for all Xbox apps

Apps for the Xbox 360 and future consoles will require Kinect support, according to reports.

Microsoft has allegedly toldKotakuthat any developers looking to upload content must ensure users can navigate them via voice or gestures through the Kinect sensor.

Microsoft is also said to be providing devs making apps with tools to help index search terms and create a standard for voice recognition and motion control.

This could also potentially be transferred to PC and mobile.

If true the move would mean Microsoft are hoping to make its successful motion sensor a central part of the Xbox experience, rather than just an add-on.
