    Ballmer promises Kinect for PC support in the future



    Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO, has promised that the company will support Kinect for PC in the future.

    Speaking to the BBC’s Click online program Ballmer revealed that Microsoft is planning to support Kinect on PC in the future. “We’re trying to move beyond gaming to include the world of socialization, movies, TV, music, and we’re trying to make the whole experience accessible to everybody in the family not just the traditional gamer,” said Ballmer.

    The BBC asked Ballmer “Will you plug-in the Kinect to the PC, will you go for that in the near future?” Ballmer confirmed Microsoft’s plans to bring Kinect support to the PC. “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,” said Ballmer.
