Might be a long wait, then

We know that Microsoft is working on the next generation Kinect, and you'd be forgiven for thinking the company would want to repeat the success of its incumbent sensor by aiming it towards the casual market again. That's unlikely to be the case according to EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich, who believes Microsoft will aggressively chase core gamers with the second iteration of Kinect.

I imagine that the purpose of any next-gen Kinect device would be targeted towards the core gaming market, likely offering new technologies for Action/Shooter titles to thrive in.

While we're understandably happy to hear the future of Kinect heading towards core games, the idea of waiting until the next generation of the sensor will make many gamers' hearts a little heavier.
