Microsoft has announced that they have a new requirement in places for all new dashboard apps that would be released for their Xbox Live platform.
Developers would have to provide support for the Kinect platform in their apps if they want them to be available for this platform.
Users are not required to have Kinect to use the apps. It just has to complement the Kinect accessory.
A company representative said: “With the new dashboard our objective is to bring the power of Kinect functionality to every experience where voice and gestures make sense.”
