Unity Technologies announced today during Build Conference in San Francisco that it has added Xbox One support for Kinect, SmartGlass support to its development tools and has also extended its commitment to Windows 8 the W8 Phone. The Xbox One version of the game engine will also feature cloud computing support, and developers being published by Microsoft Studios will be able to use Unity free. The firm will release the commercial version of its Store Add-on for Windows later this summer, and it will also be waiving the $1,500 license fee for licensed Unity Pro 4 developers as part of its Microsoft deal.
