Microsoft has announced that the Kinect for Windows will be released February 1st. While it’s been available via a hack and SDK for a while, it’s now official and the official games should start pouring in. They made it a success for the Xbox, let’s see if they can make it a hit on Windows! Of course, you can preorder it from Amazon, already – $250 – a C-note more than the Xbox 360 version. I wonder what makes it so special. Definitely a niche product for the PC.
