Keen on XBLA title for sensor

id Software's John Carmack is a legendary figure in the games industry having worked on some of the most important first person shooters of all time: Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake and more. So when he says he wants to work on Kinect, you'd be expecting him to have an a solution for the sensor's first person shooter, but not necessarily.

I have an itch to make a Kinect title for Xbox Live, but I don't even know what I'd want to do yet. I can't use Kinect for our real games; there just isn't a place for our current FPSes on there.

With Carmack currently beavering away on Rage for iOS devices and consoles it could be a long old while until he can scratch his Kinect itch, but by that time there may indeed be a place for first-person shooters. If anyone could make the genre work on Kinect, we'd be pretty confident betting on Carmack.
