When Kinect launched last year it was accompanied by a great deal of content.  Kinect Sports, Dance Central, and Kinectimals showed what the new device could do, but left many of the core Xbox 360 fanbase wanting more.  Through the success of these initial titles, and some good old fashioned marketing, Kinect sold 10 million units in under six months.  Having reached a great install base, Microsoft is getting set to unleash an onslaught of titles for the device.  MCV says that these announcements could be coming as soon as E3.

Scott Henson, studio manager at Rare, “We’ve got E3 coming up, and there’ll be lots of exciting things happening there.” The Microsoft development studio thinks that this next wave of games will “take the technology to a new level”.  “As a first party studio, our job is to lead innovation on the platform,” Henson told MCV. “We take that seriously, and you’ll see plenty from us in the coming months. I’m sure you’ll see loads from third-party too.”
