Microsoft EMEA vice president Chris Lewis revealed the first Kinect games will appeal to the broad young/older/female/family (aka Wii) audience, and added that hardcore games aren't expected to arrive for another 18 months.
"Certainly over the launch phase and this Christmas in particular I think you'll see very much pure Kinect for 360 experiences that will appeal to the broad young/older/female/family audiences I described earlier," said Lewis, speaking to Gameindustry.biz.
How long do GearsofWarHaloFable gamers have to wait then?
18 months, says Lewis, during which time "more of these hybrid experiences...where you can complement what might ostensibly be a controller-based experience with gestures, voice and physical movement" will probably make an appearance.
In the meantime, don't forget Gears of War 3, Halo Reach, and Fable III, says Lewis, all highlighted at this year's E3, shipping this fall, and aimed squarely at hardcore gamers
