MS insists you can sit with Kinect

Only in games made "with sitting in mind".

Microsoft has insisted that Xbox 360 motion-sensing add-on Kinect can recognise players who are sitting, despite a recent developer comment to the contrary.

"Kinect can be used while sitting when an experience is developed with sitting in mind," Microsoft told Joystiq.

Backing up its claim, Microsoft pointed to navigating the Dashboard and using the ESPN, Zune and Video Kinect apps as "experiences where we expect people to be sitting".

Yesterday, Eurogamer brought you confirmation that upcoming Ubisoft real-time strategy game R.U.S.E. will support Sony's PlayStation Move controller when it's released in September.

Senior producer Mathieu Girard told us the team decided not to integrate Kinect into the game because users are required to stand up while playing.
