So in case you’ve been living under a rock, instead of coming out with a new system Microsoft has decided to just extend the Xbox 360’s life with a controller-free device called Kinect. The motion-based revolution for the Xbox 360 will hit stores in November and with it comes a whole bunch of casual titles to get people moving and grooving for the holidays.

Chris Lewis, Vice President of IEB, Microsoft EMEA commented in the press release, saying…
“The line-up of games we are launching along with Kinect delivers an astonishing range of experiences and entertainment which can be enjoyed by everyone,” ... “Kinect creates a more natural and responsive experience for people of all interests and skill levels. That’s why we are so excited to offer people something truly unique that exists nowhere else.”

There will be a total of nineteen available launch titles available for Kinect, ranging from very casual to super casual and even all the way off the way-end into ridiculously casual. Of course, if you’re a casual gamer, Kinect will be right up your alley.

All right, so below you’ll find the complete lineup of launch titles that will be available for Kinect. For more info on the device and the controller-free gaming paradigm it brings with it, be sure to visit the Official Website.
