Glimpse Dog is reporting that a new Kinect-centric service, known as Avatar Kinect, is set to be announced at Microsoft’s CES keynote on Thursday.

The service seems to show a Mii-like service where Avatars can communicate with each other, as well as use services like ESPN.

Winrumours has also run the Glimpse Dog story, saying Avatar Kinect is a software update “delivered over Xbox Live”.

MS has declined to comment to VG247 about it.

Microsoft’s streaming its CES keynote online in Vegas on Thursday, as reported earlier.

It all kicks off from 2.30am GMT Thursday morning, which is 9.30pm EST/6.30pm PST tomorrow.
