Did you know that Microsoft has sold 8 million Kinect devices for the XBOX 360? Neither did we. Nintendo must be pissed. So it’s no surprise that Microsoft would use CES in Vegas to talk about new Kinect features. The one that has the interwebs slightly abuzz is Avatar Kinect. It lets you bring that sleepy avatar to life as it picks up facial expressions and and allows to to interact with your other avatar buddies in conference room fashion.

Imagine Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian avatar sex tapes, etc….the future is bright. Avatar Kinect hits in Spring and it will be free for XBOX Live Gold Members.
