The new Microsoft Kinect motion-sensitive controller presents business opportunities for targeted game marketing and advertising, according to comments made by the COO and CFO of the company’s Xbox division, per the WSJ. The system, which utilizes full body movement for gameplay, uses facial recognition technology to sign in players and match them with their avatars and profiles.
