Latest Kinect sensors allow games to feed off your fear

The latest game spawned from the Alien film franchise is being made by Creative Assembly, a game studio in Horsham, UK. It is likely to be one of the first games to explore the potential of Microsoft's next-generation Kinect sensors for the Xbox One games console. Announced at the same time as the unveiling of the Xbox One last week, the new Kinect is a huge improvement on its predecessor (see "New wave"). It will have HD colour and infrared cameras that can see if your eyes are open or closed in the dark. It will be able to detect your pulse from fluctuations in skin tone and, by measuring how light reflects off your face, it will know when you start to sweat.

I was internet surfing and I found this article. Good read too. Hope games like Evil Within use this heart rate system from the Kinect. Great possibilities indeed.

I'll have to see it to believe it when it launches. When natal was introduced and announced it offered a vision that didn't come to life at launch. Skeptical this time around.

The fact that it's another Alien game, hopefully this game studio is no smoke and mirrors like Gearbox. True that Natal Never seen the light of day, but I am sure Microsoft will get it right this time around. I'm going to E3 one week from now. Still looking at the PS4 as my first pick, but Microsoft have to convince me that Xbox One, should be the one for me first over the other. If I see actual gameplay using the kinect feature along with other promising games, then Microsoft sold me good.

I can understand that. I jumped head first into kinect and i was disappointed mostly. II felt even sadder when i saw the amazing things being done on PC game wise with it and MS just never jumped on it.

um no. i already get scared of certain games and i do not need a camera creeping me out by watching me while i play.

it seems like a cool feature but you know what else would be a cool feature? a well-designed game. games can be scary without a heart monitor keeping an eye on you

I hope this happens. I remember the Wii Vitality Sensor, too bad it was it never put to use. Horror games would be taken to a whole new level.

There are rumors that microsoft is making a Zombie game, if it's true I can guarantee that it will use this feature.
