    This is something Microsoft has promised before and it would be strange to not see drivers become available for Kinect, especially considering all of the money they have spent on it recently.

    Is there really a need for these drivers? [​IMG] We already got some. [​IMG]

    It's new info from CES that MS will be working on something. The concept of the news is old but the story itself is new, if you get me.

    These are ones Microsoft can control. Then they can get onto the Opensource ones and say "We made some, you are now illegal"

    Besides the drivers, won't MSFT be coming out with a way to connect the Kinnect to a PC?

    How is it connected to a PC now - there is no easy way?

    I have a feeling this will all be in the next version of XNA.

    I dont know how its connected to the Xbox 360 but if its not by USB Im going to assume they will make an adapter for it and in the future sell it with the Kinect and/or seperatly

    No they can't. And MS love open source as long as it's a license that means they can use it no questions asked.
