Rumour: Microsoft preparing Kinect drivers, SDK for PC


WinRumors is reporting that Microsoft is preparing PC-compatible drivers and an SDK for Kinect.

It claims it will be coming out with the tools "in the coming months". The drivers will come out with the beta tag and could be incorporated into a "Community Technical Preview" of XNA.

The site says it will enable third-party developers to make titles that uses the sensor when it is plugged into a PC.

Back at CES, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told the BBC that Kinect PC support was only a matter of when, not if, saying the company would support it in a "formal way in the right time".
