Carmack interested in doing a Kinect-centric XBLA game

0

When you're thinking of potential developers you want tinkering with your latest tech, id's John Carmack has got to be near the top of that list. Speaking with Joystiq, the famed programmer and technical director said he has "an itch to make a Kinect title for Xbox LIVE."

"I can't use Kinect for our real games; there just isn't a place for our current FPSes on there," he revealed. He's not alone in that sentiment, and I think that's why many studios who are known for creating those types of experiences haven't announced anything for Kinect yet.

Before you get too excited over the possibilities of a Kinect-powered id title for XBLA, realize that Carmack also said "I don't even know what I'd want to do yet." Plus, he's still got the non-mobile versions of RAGE to worry about, and those aren't due out anytime soon.
