Star Wars Kinect announced
A new Star Wars title has been announced for the Xbox 360 Kinect. Now, to be quite honest, I think the Kinect is more of a joke than a worthwhile add-on peripheral, but this is the first Kinect title that has piqued my interest to levels of mild interest. The E3 trailer started off by higlighting the most predictable use of the Kinect's motion recognition: weilding a lightsaber and using force powers. But then it went on to show podracing and some space dogfights. All of the footage was pre-rendered, and at this point there's no way of knowing what all will make into the final game. But if the gameplay meshes well with the motion-recognition control scheme, this could pave the way for more full-fledged Kinect releases.
