    ok, by the lack of replies, but lots of views, I assume the rumor i read about, is so old it's been discussed to death? just couldn't find anything about it on this forum, unless all traces were deleted because it turned out to be a joke / hoax / tosh

    Yes, Kinect-Ready Laptops (and maybe monitors) will be available with Windows 8, but I highly doubt that this implies compatibility with XBox Games. The development kit for Kinect from Microsoft just enables developers to use that device on Windows and nothing else.

    I've read about those rumors too, but they're so old that it would be a very big surprise if Microsoft implements it now in the comsumer preview - or later, as I think they'll mark that version as "feature complete".
