Microsoft preparing ‘Avatar Kinect’ game for CES Announcement?

While this probably won’t do much to satisfy those worrying about Microsoft’s shortage of core games for the coming year, it appears that this years CES keynote from the company won’t be without gaming announcements.

Specifically, it seems Microsoft is preparing for an announcement of ‘Avatar Kinect’ if screenshots taken backstage in Vegas are anything to go by. Nothing else is known regarding the project apart from these two shots we managed to snag from a video walk through from CES.

I doubt that ‘Avatar Kinect’ will be packaged as a fully fledged game. Instead, I’m betting we’ll see this as part of another xbox live update, which we may see announced at CES.

Microsoft’s CES keynote takes place this Wednesday at 6:30pm PST. You can watch it live here.
