Halo 4 And A Whole Lot Of Kinect Headline Microsoft's Big E3 Press Conference

There will be a new Halo trilogy, starting with late 2012's Halo 4. That was the show-ending big news in a Microsoft E3 showcase that pushed Kinect hard.

How much Kinect was there?

We had Kinect Star Wars, a game that lets you control a Jedi hero with gesture and voice.

We had Ryse, a motion-controlled game that has you sword-slashing through the fall of Rome.

We have Minecraft with Kinect support coming to the Xbox 360 in late 2012.

We have Ghost Recon Future Soldier letting you take weapons apart and mod them with Kinect-enabled hand gestures.

We got Fable: The Journey letting us cast spells with waves of our hands.

Add in Kinect FunLabs, which will support the long-promised Kinect features like scanning real objects into a video game world.

And there will be Kinect support in EA Sports games.

More!... Kinect support for the entire Xbox interface and to watch live TV, including local channels. ... Kinect voice-controlled Mass Effect 3!

And there was some non-Kinect news: A Halo re-make for this year.


    I am a xbox user and i have to say

    Halo 4, halo remake, mass effect 3 with kinect, that kinect labs and minecraft were the only good things

    But umm microsoft australia has no voice for kinect.............. Address that issue please

    The only thing that has me slightly interested is the talky interface -but we probably won't get that here in Australia right?

    Overall, very underwhelming. 2/5

    Can I just say, where the hell Is the bloody kinect SDK which was supposed to come out late spring. Not even a release date and there is less than s couple weeks of spring left.

    just make an american account and your voice thingy will work, if its that big of a deal. mine works fine and has so since day one!

    Seem to be pushing voice control for a lot of things and playing around the edges with hand waving...need a button or three to make this kinect thing work? I play games till late when my house is asleep so I don't need to be shouting at anything thanks...

    Considering I was struck by lightning in 2003 I really CANNOT wait to have THIS game.....
