Microsoft has announced the launch portfolio for Kinect, listing the seventeen titles which will be available at the motion-controller's launch. The games - the full list of which you can see after the cut - represent the first wave of controller-free titles, and include Kinectimals, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and Fighters Uncaged.
Meanwhile, Microsoft gaming spokesperson Major Nelson is suggesting that those gamers hoping to get a Kinect at launch should probably pre-order now, since many retailers are apparently reporting being sold out of their allotment. That's despite Microsoft's claim that they have more Kinect stock than they did of any other Xbox launch.
