This time, though, Evans, says, Kinect will tempt even gamers who have been welded to joypads for decades to try “full body gaming” - by working alongside normal game controls.
“This is not gesture detection. It’s full analogue mastery – where games can see subtle movements such as a twist of the wrist or a lean in the spine, the type of precision that allows a gamer to really perfect their skills to master the game,” says Evans.
“This precision also enables Kinect to see human movement while holding a controller. Lean into a turn or raise the controller to bring up your shield – all from the sofa with your fingers never leaving the controller. This capability can enhance a hardcore game in ways that have never been possible.”
