OXM UK: "It's not something you'd put on the front of the box," says 343.
Show-room mode. That's literally the only way I could see Kinect working in this game.
. As long as the game can be played with a regular controller and the Kinect features enabled for those who want to use them then who cares. 99.9% of those who play Halo, will play it without Kinect. It would be very dumb of M$ to try a ram Kinect down the throats of Halo gamers. There are things Kinect does well, right now, FPS isn't one of them. More and More it seems M$ is moving away from gaming and more towards a casual, hey look, we have u-tube and ESPN as well as games type of console experience as they try and be everything to everyone. Kinect is a great idea that is working through it's issues but trying to force it into traditional controller based games is a mistake, same for the move and the Wii. Those gaming experiences have to be built from the ground up, not shoehorned in.
Did you read the article? It's been said before too, but Kinect isn't going to be integrated into the actual gameplay mechanics. Thinks more in line with a character model viewer where you could rotate models, or even voice command to go to navigate the menus of the game.
read before you reply
Every game Move has been "tacked onto" works great. Many of them I prefer to use the move over the standard controller, such as mag or killzone 3.
"It would be very dumb of M$ to try a ram Kinect down the throats of Halo gamers. There are things Kinect does well, right now, FPS isn't one of them" I wouldn't worry about it. It'll most likely be used for things like voice recognition to control a squad, much like Mass Effect 3.
eh im gonna have a blast playing through the campaign
"It's not something you'd put on the front of the box" Just like any game with optional kinect support
I actually wish they'd put that gaudy purple "Better with Kinect" bar on the back of the box. At least then it wouldn't mar the green boxhead aesthetic.
Yea I have seen it on some boxes, not a nice look they should just put it on the back
child of eden begs to differ
I'm pretty damn sure Child of Eden is exclusive to Kinect on the 360 platfrom. So it's not "optional". You MUST have Kinect to play it.
Child of eden is coming to PS3 as well.
Obviously you've not played Child Of Eden I take it? So much better with Kinect.
@Clizzz Your pretty damn wrong kid. You can use Kinect or the controller and like frosty said, its coming to PS3 too.
You blind or something? I said "Exclusive to KINECT on the 360" PLATFORM. I did NOT say it was a 360 EXCLUSIVE. There is a HUGE difference between those two statements. "Kid". I was wrong about it not being controller enabled.
I don't understand what you're trying to say. You don't have to have a Kinect to play it and it's coming to other platforms. There's nothing "exclusive" about the game. If it's exclusive to Kinect just because it supports Kinect well then every game that supports Kinect is exclusive then.
You could have said it requires the Kinect camera to play the 360 version of Child of Eden or "360 version can only be played with Kinect", simple as that!!!!!
Leave Halo alone
Good, I don't want it on the front of the box. The cover art is great.
The 150 dollar camera that is only accurate when issuing voice commands. ....something a 15 dollar headset should be able to do and has done.
Halo is on Kinect r u kidding me? why
