Microsoft's Kinect for Xbox 360 launch is only a few months away, Xbox's Kudo Tsunoda, at Gamescom said that "many of the titles for Kinect at launch will only support two players, but it isn't become of limitations in the technology, it's because of the developers choice." This mean that Kinect will support more than four players on screen at the same time. Although no maximum number of players were mentioned, we can suspect Kinect will be able to handle four or more players.

"You can see like sometimes in a split-screen game it's hard to add more and more players because it's hard to see what's going on - and that's true of any game. I think something like Dance Central you can see is already incorporating more than two," Tsunoda said.

Kinect launches on Nov 10, 2010 and will sell for $149.99 in the US, £129.99 in the UK, and $199.99 AUD in Australia.
