We are closing in on the release of Microsoft’s Kinect, and even the launch lineup leaves a lot to be desired, the technology powering Kinect is undeniably intriguing. It’s just going to be a while before we start to see the Kinect’s true potential. Still, like reader Pound_of_Flesh points out, there’s no harm in imagining how Kinect will be integrated into already established genres:
I still think that games like FPSs and RPGs will eventually be able to find uses for Kinect. Easy one for shooters is leaning out of cover. RPGs could use gestures for spells and such. There is no reason that Kinect can't be used in tandem with a controller. I'm looking forward to the day COD brings back the lean. Rainbow Six could benefit from it. Even Gears of War could bring a new curbstomp to the table (maybe).
All good suggestions. What say you?
