Microsoft's Kinect coming to PC gaming?

Well, well Microsoft. Rumors are flying that the Kinect motion-based sensor will in the future, support PC games. Korean developer GamePrix's upcoming PC-only MMORPG, Divine Souls, will support gaming pads making "it resemble console games even more, and is scheduled to support Kinect, a new control system of Xbox360."

GamePrix's Jason Lim continued, saying: "Kinect will soon be available as a new controller so it might be supported like joy pad mode in the future," also mentioning "Currently in MS, there are many game companies that are trying to apply for this system." The implication is that Divine Souls won't be the only game for the PC that supports the Kinect.

Obviously there's no concrete news on this, the developer is small when compared to the much larger dev houses out there, so this news should be taken with a metric tonne of salt. But, the possibilities are here and we can only wish, right?
