REPORT: All Future Xbox 360 Dashboard Apps Must Support Kinect Controls

Going forward, Microsoft have stipulated that all future Dashboard apps must offer gesture navigation and voice command control.

Kotaku reports that Microsoft informed them that "that anyone looking to have their content or experiences on the Xbox will need to make sure that users will be able to navigate with gestures or voice". However, Microsoft aren't leaving developers out in the cold, apparently "helping developers making apps with tools to help index search terms for voice recognition and motion controls".

Kinect's success, and Microsoft's desire to set an industry standard across a number of platforms, has led to Kinect control now becoming a requirement where before it was a cool novelty.
