Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Kinect Support Coming to Skyrim

http://www.bethblog.com/2012/04/12/kinect-support-coming-to-skyrim/

Fully knowing that you can’t get enough of your favorite dragon shouts, we’re pleased to announce that Kinect for Xbox 360  support is coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Available for free as a title update slated for release this month, Skyrim Kinect for Xbox 360 Support will feature more than 200 Voice Commands… including the game’s dragon shouts.

In addition to Dragon Shouts, the Kinect for Xbox 360 integration offers voice commands throughout the game including Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills). With Voice Commands, quickly create and load saves during gameplay and access menus and inventories. Skyrim’s Kinect for Xbox 360 Support also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value.

To get an early look at Kinect for Xbox 360  support, watch the video above featuring programmer Ricardo Gonzalez, who put together the preliminary concept for Kinect for Xbox 360 Support during the Skyrim Game Jam.

A full list of Voice Commands will be revealed in the coming weeks, and we’ve got more Skyrim news coming. Bethesda Game Studios has been hard at work on creating the first set of game add-ons that will be exclusive to the Xbox 360. This additional content will add new quests, locations, features, and much more to the world of Skyrim. Stay tuned for more details.

Don't really see the point after several months, but I suppose it's nifty for those who would still like to try it.

Fu sa rah! Or whatever... :P

maybe i will get this game for my xbox instead of pc. Still waiting for a good deal on either system.

How long before the 'This could easily be done on move/pc. Lazy devs' rants?

I actually thought this was a joke when I saw it, but I guess not.

Seems kind of pointless, but might be handy for some I guess, I have had enough of Skyrim anyway

You already can on PC though :)

Gotta love mods. 





Late but awesome news. Will definitely try it out once Bethesda release some DLC.

Some commands are EXTREMELY useful and much quicker than by using a controller.
