Rumor: Microsoft Preparing Kinect For PC?

Do you want a Microsoft Kinect to play with your PC? Well friend, it may not be that far off as we're hearing rumors that MS is preparing to release PC-compatible drivers and and an SDK for the Kinect.

The particular rumor comes from WinRumor, who states that MS will release the tools "in the coming months". Apparently the tools could be released as a beta type program and become incorporated into a Community Technical Preview of the XNA.

Microsoft has long said that Kinect for the PC was not an "if" but a "when". Appears that "when", is now.
