I've had Kinect since Christmas and I've got to be honest, apart from the first few days playing on Kinect Adventures, the clever little sensor bar's been sitting near my TV gathering dust. Don't get me wrong I'm excited by the technology, it's incredibly impressive, there just aren't that many games out there that let it shine, although I'm pretty excited about getting hold of Child Of Eden. However, it looks like this is all set to change, in which case I'll need to break out a duster, because according to Microsoft there are three times as many Kinect games lined up for this year.
This revelation about an increase in Kinect games is hardly surprising though when you consider that Dance Central sales have hit the 2.5 million units mark and Kinect Sports have climbed to over 3 million units! Thanks to vg247 for those figures.

Well, it looks like we'll just have to wait and see what happens in June, but I've got my fingers crossed that the list of upcoming Kinect games will have a couple of special entries in it rather than being saturated by games that are predominantly focused on the gimmicky nature of motion controls.
