I wouldn't mind them putting stuff like the mass effect voice command things in, but the day the announce gears of war: kinect, thats the day i turn away from microsoft forever

Surely you mean Epic?

Besides what if the Kinect feature was voice commands like in Mass Effect 3 or maybe a hand of god style map maker?

what i meant was a gears game made specifically for kinect, the way the new fable is a kinect only game 



End of 2012 prediction:

xbox 360 : 73-75 million  playstation 3 : 72-74 million  wii : 104-105 million 

Most hyped for :

Bioshock: infinte, The Last Of Us, Alan Wake's American Nightmare and Agent

seems like zero PS3 games we need to care

"Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson says BioWare is bringing voice commands to Kinect and Xbox 360 because Microsoft's sound and motion-sensing controller is doing the hard work of voice recognition. Kinect's internal hardware is what makes it possible—or at least much easier to get voice commands working—not just its microphones."



People need to start giving Kinect some credit. It has one of the most advanced voice recognition systems available. It is alot easier for developers to leverage the Kinect's hardware and software as opposed to going thru the trouble of writing their own voice recognition code.

I'm trying to figure out how you can implement voice recognition in hardware - surely it's largely a software task?

 

Also while the Kinect is a cool piece of hardware, doesn't mean it needs to be implemented everywhere. I'd prefer to see it used where it would actually improve the experience rather than just adding it in for the hell of it (I'm talking to you ME3).



Thank God he said optional...

Don't want to get Kinect at all. No reason to...

What first party? o_O;;;; Who the fuck cares about MS 1st party games besides Halo 4? Seriously, anybody gives a shit about "Adventure" games? Halo is all that matters for MS 1st party, and I doubt they'd fuck up that game with Kinect.

Its not going to be mandotory...it would probably be extra features like the voice control or something like that.

That's a lame feature for anything other than a more complex RTS anyways(voice commands,) and you have to hide and play by yourself so people don't fuck you over on purpose, since I'd totally fuck up other people intentionally when they have it on just to piss them off.

It doesn't have to be voice controll, I was just giving an example. The point is its not mandatory and most of the time it will probably be just some extra features.

What does this have to do with PS3 games?

 

Look at the post above you if you are trying to accuse PS3 owners of being the ones who do not like the idea.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

I still think the concept was rushed out too early with Kinect when they should have done more R&D on it personally. It's a good concept that's not powerful enough so a lot of things feel tacked on when it comes to dealing with vet gamers.

It is software but the software exists and is being run inside Kinect.  So instead of a game maker needing to license or develop their own voice recognition software and then integrate it into their code they can basically access the existing software inside Kinect which is parsing the voice data for them.  It makes it much easier to implement voice recognition into their game which means more games will be likely to do so.
