According to the BBC, a Star Wars game that uses the Microsoft Kinect controller is coming in 2011, so we may all finally get a decent motion-controlled lightsaber game! I know I've been waiting since the Wii was announced in 2006.
According to Kinect's creative director, Kudo Tsunoda:
"We have a Kinect Star Wars game coming out for next holiday [Christmas 2011]... I think you could just easily imagine being a Jedi and using Kinect to make you feel you're part of a Star Wars experience, building yourself up into a Jedi. I've seen a bunch of the game and it's super compelling."
I think a Kinect Star Wars game could totally work, but in my perfect world, the game would be controlled by a combination of the controller and the Kinect, and each would be used when appropriate. I don't want to fly an X-Wing using Kinect, but I do want to swing a Kinect lightsaber. Know what I mean?
