With hackers showing the world what Kinect is truly capable of, it was only a matter of time before Microsoft decided to release its own, official PC support for the Xbox 360's motion sensing camera.

PC gossip site WinRumors reckons that Microsoft "is currently preparing an official Kinect SDK and driver support for Windows based PCs", meaning that instead of having to mess around with code to get Kinect working on your PC, you'd just need to download the official drivers and go from there.

It's also claimed that Microsoft will be promoting the use of Kinect on PC with third parties, which will hopefully not just lead to loads of exciting new ways to interact with your computer, but to official Kinect games on the PC as well.
