Construct 2 makes HTML5 games which run in a browser, so having it come to PCs isn't enough, it needs to support HTML5!

One question:

Is Kinect a standard product?

To use KinectJS, you must install an app on the machine, that read the data from the Kinect, and serve it on localhost, for the JS part to read it. It's not going to work "like taht" on any machine without installing that.

Indeed. If you make a game that uses Kinect, how do you plan to cater to users who do not have such a controller?

Although not a standard kinect, i think it would be interesting to have an alternative control option, especially for experimental gameplay... although I think the idea is not very popular.
