Mind Blowing Kinect games Due in April

Technology blogger Robert Scoble kick started rumors on Twitter this week by suggesting that the software giant is preparing a second wave of "mind blowing" games:

Scoble is a former Microsoft employee who left the company in 2006 to pursue a full-time blogging career. Scoble still has close ties to Microsoft and has previously hinted at several product launches ahead of their official release. Microsoft currently has four Kinect titles that its game studios division publishes. The software giant has previously confirmed it’s working on four new Kinect titles for release in 2011: Codename D, Forza Motorsport 4, Haunt and Project Draco.

Microsoft revealed at CES earlier this month that the company has sold over 8 million Kinect sensors in just 60 days on the market. Microsoft’s Kinect sensor has been a phenomenal success story for the company. The console accessory sold out across a number of retailers during the recent festive season and Microsoft smashed its own estimates of 5 million units in 2010 by shipping 8 million devices.

According to recent reports, Microsoft may have sacrificed its January and February stocks to satisfy Christmas shoppers. The software giant has warned of further Kinect shortages in the coming weeks.

WinRumors revealed earlier this week that Microsoft officials are currently readying an official SDK and Kinect drivers for Windows. Microsoft is set to unveil driver support and an SDK in the coming months and will allow third-party developers to create titles that utilize the Kinect sensor when plugged into a PC.
