Video game publisher Microsoft seems to be ready to launch a new gaming brand, called Fusion, and has already trademarked three projects that will be linked to it, although no official details have been offered on them.
The Australian Classifications Board, which has long revealed video game names and projects before companies officially announced them, has outed something called Fusion Genesis
recently and a fan site has also received information on trademarks on Fusion Sentient and Fusion Vault
The Fusion projects have received classification just after the new Kinect Me concept, which might mean that Microsoft is developing a whole new gaming brand for the motion tracking system and that these three products are the first ones in a long line designed to attract new gamers to the technology.
Microsoft has promised that it will be soon tripling the video game line up that is powered by the Kinect motion tracking system, but has not said if it will be internally developing the new game or whether it is relying on third parties for its new games.
Since it was launched in November of last year, Microsoft has managed to sell more than 10 million Kinect packages and the same amount of games that use it.
has performed better than the Sony made rival, the PlayStation Move, and has helped the Xbox 360 take the top spot in sales charts in the United States.
Of course, the Fusion brand might have nothing to do with Kinect and might simply refer to a new trilogy that Microsoft is preparing.
The Xbox 360 needs some new gaming blood to power its home console, considering that this fall Gears of War 3 will be launched, probably the last of its franchise, and that it might be some time until we see an all new Halo game.
More Fusion detail might arrive at E3.
