@XG247: Don Mattrick just dropped a miniature bombshell on what was seen as a 'Kinect Exclusive'.
I was wondering why headsets weren't a viable option, turns out that's because they are.
And even then most people just want to press a button. Who is honestly going to play a single player game reading the lines out loud to themselves? It's pointlessly forced on.
Aspiring Actors? :P
The same people who scream into their DS Phoenix Wright games. If there's a kinect option for ME3 more power to it. At least there's an option for the people who actually bought it.
I like the feature. Obviously there will be more features annouced later on.
I will actually do it, it's quite quick in comparison too buttons I think. This is not limited to the 360 either
Good to hear. This means that the PS3 versions will have the "kinect" features also, right?
Microsoft really wants developers using kinect features.
was funny is that ps did this with socom a long time ago
So it doesn't require Kinect exclusive hardware. There you go. I think it's now only a matter of time until we discover you can use any old headset on any platform to take advantage of voice command. And because of that, the same feature will be in all versions of the game.
I'd still rather just use a controller.
Honestly, I think it`ll be faster/more efficent to use a controller over saying the lines.
plus yelling at your tv will make you look more idiotic.
I think immersion is what it's all about.
lol lmao i mean they tried to make it seem like its new and fresh and inovative and onli posible on kinect lmfao
Yeah PS Move could do this
You meant PSeye, right? Of course you did. Now get lost.
if Bioware announced headset/PSeye support for ME3 on PC and PS3. The voice thing is pretty cool though. The story line one is useless, but the point and command feature in gameplay could be useful and fun to use.
you people will never give kinect a chance no matter what it does. No not everyone will use the feature but some will love the immersion.
I'm a HUGE Mass Effect fan and saying those lines is DUMB. The only reason it's dumb is because when you say it, Shepard still says his normal lines, so it isn't like what you're doing taking the place of Shepard and immersing you. I'm glad it's optional because that definitely isn't a reason to buy Kinect.
They could always do it like one of those sing-a-long disney movies where you read the lines as they appear on the screen. ;)
Mass Effect 3 doesn't need kinect at all..
Well Der... all it needs is a microphone and the software to utilise it. And how is it a "nicer" experience anyway? I understand if you bought Kinect, you want some real games to play with it, but this is nothing special or innovative to justify the "better with Kinect" tag. Its forced and contrived.
Good. Hopefully you can just use a standard headset. I know I'll use it... when none of my roommates are around. It's not necessary, but I like to get, corny as it sounds, "in" the game.
