Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Supports Kinect?

EA’s upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was listed as one of the Kinect launch games available as part of Walmart’s newly announced Kinect bundle. Funny thing is, EA hasn’t mentioned Kinect support for the game, and, in fact, they aren't planning to mention anything about it for the time being either.

When asked about the Deathly Hallows/Kinect listing, an EA representative told me, “We have not made any announcements or comments on this at this time.”

Unless Kinect does support object recognition after all, it could end up being a little awkward to cast wand-based spells in Deathly Hallows without that kind of tactile connection to said wand; not to mention that Sony’s PlayStation Move-supported Sorcery game is basically Sharry Botter, and is clearly a much more natural fit for motion-controlled wizardry.

Also, it would seem that Deathly Hallows for the PS3 will include Move support too if in fact the game does include motion control capabilities at all, although that would definitely be a toes-stepping scenario, so who knows. Guess it's only a matter of time now before we more about the Boy Who Kinected/Moved.

Should the need arise, feel free to E-Mail me your tips, suggestions, and/or personal philosophies, or follow me on Twitter.
