id's Carmack wants to make Kinect title

But "can't use Kinect for our real games."

id Software boss John Carmack wants to make a Kinect game – but it won't be a lift of one of its current FPS titles.

The Quake creator told Joystiq, "I have an itch to make a Kinect title for Xbox Live."

However, he's short on a concept right now. "I don't even know what I'd want to do yet," he explained.

"I can't use Kinect for our real games; there just isn't a place for our current FPSes on there," Carmack explained. "But it's an interesting technology, and an Xbox Live game would be the perfect platform to do something like that on, at about the same scale of [a game for] an iOS device."

Next up from Carmack and id Software is post-apocalyptic FPS Rage, due next year for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. While you're waiting, an impressive iOS rail shooter spin-off called Rage: Mutant Bash TV hit the App Store earlier today.
