Kinecthalo

According to Microsoft Game Studios boss Phil Spencer, all future first party games from the Redmond giants will include some sort of Kinect support – even Halo Anniversary, the recently confirmed HD remake of the first Halo: Combat Evolved. This has left many, including me, scratching their heads, wondering “why?”

I’ll admit I love Kinect; it’s great technology with some rather interesting applications. I’m just not sure it’s all that cut out to be a gaming peripheral, and Microsoft seems to be a little lost as to what to do with the product; do they keep on dishing out casual mass market fluff, or really put their attention on the core?

“Core focus for us in our press briefing this year with Kinect actually came from two sides,” Spencer said to Gamespot during an E3 interview. “As a first-party, we believe that Kinect will be important to all genres of games, be it racing games with Forza, combat games like Ryse. Even games like Halo Anniversary has Kinect integration.”

What the…? Why? Furthering my believe that MS just has very little real idea of their future plans for Kinect, Spencer said :

“The interesting thing with the amount of original content that creators came to the show with – things like what Mass Effect did, Ghost Recon – we didn’t know that was going to be on our stage when we started our E3 planning.”
