Fifa 13 referees will 'hear' Xbox Kinect players swearing

Xbox Kinect owners will have to mind their language in the next version of Fifa, EA's football video game.

Fifa 13 will take advantage of Microsoft Kinect to allow players to shout commands to their team to change tactics or formations without pausing the game.

But the system will also listen for players whose frustration gets the better of them. Swearing at the referee will influence their decision-making, possibly leading to more bookings. EA says that in Fifa 13's career mode, gamers will find that storylines will develop if they acquire a reputation for abusing referees. (FIFA 13, Kinect, Xbox 360)

What's funny hear is that the same results can be achieved with a simple mic. Funny how the PS3 and PC version won't feature something like that

Its just standardizing, integration and support. Mics have been around forever but a standard library of data and software is a major part of why its done with kinect and not other devices.

Software is a big part of what makes kinect ...kinect.

Kinect's microphone is very unique and is not a simple mic.
