Kinect seems to be enjoying a fair bit of success ever since its launch earlier this month. Even though the initial line-up of games is strictly targeted toward the casual gamer, it seems Microsoft is gearing (pun intended) up the big guns for a “hardcore” Kinect game. According to sources close to IGN, Microsoft is all set to incorporate Kinect functionality in a Gears of War game at the Spike VGA awards this December.
As of now there’s no word on whether this is an all new game set in the Gears universe to accommodate Kinect or if it’s just a gimmick to draw in some of the crowds but I am most curious to see how this would work. How would you take cover? How would you chainsaw? How would the casual gaming crowd adjust to such a violent game? Or would they tone the game down to accommodate their sensitive tastes?
I guess all these and more would be answered next month. In the meantime do let us know what you think of this unholy reunion in the comments below.
