Popular iOS title Doodle Jump (pictured above) is headed to Xbox Live Arcade, which is good news for fans of simple, easy-to-play platformers. It's bad news, however, for people who don't enjoy moving around.

Developer Lima Sky has confirmed that the XBLA version of the game will utilize Kinect in someway, shape, or form. How that will work isn't clear.

One has to hope that Lima has something less exhaustive in mind.

Doodle Jump fans, is this the Kinect killer app you've been waiting for?

Microsoft's Phil Spencer on Kinect: 'consumers love the device, they'll buy it'

As much as people make fun of Kinect, it sold a lot of units on the Xbox 360 as an add-on. On the Xbox One -- they didn't have a choice -- they had to buy it. But as of a few weeks ago Microsoft had a change of heart, and dec...more
