Don't get "hyper-excited" about Halo Anniversary Kinect

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.

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.

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

Convas2610d ago

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.

fossilfern2610d ago

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

Convas2610d ago

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.

fr0sty2610d ago

Child of eden is coming to PS3 as well.

Raven_Nomad2610d ago

Obviously you've not played Child Of Eden I take it? So much better with Kinect.
