You may have checked out the article we had last week about the future of hardcore Kinect title, and it seems that Microsoft wasn’t that far behind in the world of rumors. Turns out that Microsoft is getting prepared to drop some announcements at this years VGA’s (video game awards), amongst these rumors and preparations Epic Games may have something up their sleeves after all.
Mind you this is still in rumor form, but I know how to Kinect dots (no pun intended)! It is unclear if Epic is attempting to intergrade Kinect with Gears 3 or if there is a separate Kinect dominate Gears installment. This could give further explanation as to why Gears of War 3 has been delayed, who knows maybe Microsoft is planning for a tandem launch with a whole new way to play shooters.
The VGA’s is past years have been a launch pad for a lot of popular AAA games, and this year holds now the same anticipation. This is good news I think in a weird way, I cant see Epic forcing users to play with Kinect in the new Gears installment, so its more likely to have Kinects use optional or dedicated to another game entirely. Keep in mind this is a rumor, but judging by recent announcements and shifts in the market this whole situation does make perfect sense. Stay tuned for updates as this may be the turning point for many Kinect fence riders. Who knows this could actually turn into something revolutionary! Share your thoughts.
