Xbox 360, Kinect and Windows Phone 7–Microsoft’s answer to the Wii U?

Nintendo’s Wii U has recently been announced and not has not been received well.

Nintendo revealed its Wii U game concepts at E3 a few days ago, which consists of a controlled featuring a touch screen, a large number of sensors and wireless connection to the console.

Now that sounds a lot like the above concept, shown off by Microsoft 4 months earlier, featuring integration between Kinect, Xbox 360 and a Windows Phone 7 handset. The combination offers much of features of the Wii U, but in a much more manageable package, and likely a lot cheaper than Nintendo’s version.

I don’t know if the Wii U needs answering, with Nintendo’s stock dropping more than 10% after the announcement, but if it does Microsoft appears to have been ready for some time.
