Mass Effect 3 Better With Kinect?

According to a poster on the NeoGaf forum, Mass Effect 3 box art appeared on the EA store earlier today. A purple bar on the cover seems to indicate BioWare may think Mass Effect 3 is "better with Kinect." Xbox 360 games with the purple bar have Kinect compatible features. The image has apparently since been taken down from EA's site. A few weeks ago during EA's investor call they confirmed we'd be seeing a new way to play ME3 at E3. Could Kinect gameplay be that new feature?

Keep reading to see a list of ways I think Mass Effect 3 could use Kinect compatibility.

I want to make it clear that I do not support Mass Effect 3 getting Kinect functionality. The same goes for PSMove features since its a multiplatform game. But for the purposes of making myself feel better I've composed a short list of ways I think motion sensing would best be implemented.

  • Mining planets by waving your arms like a cat playing with yarn. The yarn being the planet.
  • Instead of pushing the Right bumper to do special Renegade options, you can actually punch the air.
  • Feeding the fish in your quarters will be even easier with Kinect! 
  • When you're on the SR-2(3) and Shepard brings up the map to navigate where the ship will go next, you can use your hands to choose your destination.

Okay, that last one was actually a really good idea. Admit it. How do you think Mass Effect 3 could use Kinect?

Mass Effect 3 is set to be released in early 2012.
