First Party Microsoft Developer Working on 3D with Kinect

While Nintendo and Sony have been pretty proactive on 3D stereoscopic gaming, Microsoft has been a little quiet on the homefront. Sure, some rumors have popped up, but there has not been any real solid confirmation that the company is working on 3D gaming with any seriousness.

However, at last week's Kinect event in San Francisco, we had the opportunity to talk to Shannon Loftis, the head of Good Science Studio. A first party studio known for Kinect Adventures, Good Science was one of the initial teams to work with Kinect, and primarily deals with the newest tech Microsoft plays with. We asked Loftis about what is next for the studio, to which she said:

"They [Good Science's developers] are working with Microsoft research and some of the original inventors of the technology. They are seeing what you can do if you combine, say, the Kinect with 3D."

So there you go, Microsoft is working with Kinect and 3D. Who knows if and when this is applied to the Xbox 360, but at least we can confirm that Microsoft is interested in making these technologies come together. What do you think? Would you play Kinect if it was in 3D?

[Edit: Microsoft has since reached out to us with this quote: "Just wanted to clarify that when you spoke with her last Thursday, she was saying that 3D is a good creative direction for Kinect as opposed to current path of research Good Science is embarking on."]
