Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming anniversary edition of Bungie’s original Halo: Combat Evolved, which was officially unveiled earlier this month at E3, will include Kinect motion-control support. This does not mean that the game will only be playable with a Kinect controller, however. It’s just an option for those who want to use it.
Remember a few months ago when a rumor was circulating that Microsoft had provided EA with a prototype for the next Xbox console? Well, that rumor has resurfaced in recent weeks. Only this time, it says that Crytek has the box and that they’re using it as a test bed for a new TimeSplitters title. Crytek, of course, denies any knowledge of a new Xbox console.
Well, this is going to be downright amazing.
So, you want to buy a Kinect but you don’t have enough space in your living room to use it properly? That’s no longer an issue thanks to Nyko’s new adapter, the Zoom Kinect. The guys at Engadget gave it a test run and they say it works flawlessly.
The Kanye West track is unfortunate. But those are some mighty nice polygons.
Mojang and Microsoft revealed this morning at E3 that Minecraft is coming to Xbox Live Arcade in late 2012 – and it’s going to ship with full support for the Kinect control interface.
Pardon me for a moment. I need to change my underwear.
Microsoft brought out the big guns during their E3 press conference this morning, not only confirming the existence of two new Halo titles but also…
- …unveiling a completely new look and feel for Xbox Live.
- …confirming that a streaming IPTV service is headed to Xbox Live.
- …announcing that YouTube is now an official Xbox Live partner.
- …revealing a new integrated Kinect powered voice search system.
- …lauding the success of Kinect and promising extended support and enhanced features for popular franchises including all future EA Sports titles.
Considering that it’s only the first day of the show, it should be very interesting to see what the other big game makers have in store.
Microsoft shocked the gaming world during their E3 press conference this morning with the news that there will be a brand new Halo trilogy, starting with Halo 4 in 2012. They also confirmed that an HD and possibly 3D remake of the original Halo is also in the pipe.
Several anonymous sources are saying that Microsoft is planning to add a “Diamond” level of service to the Xbox Live platform that will integrate some sort of Hulu-esque subscription television service in November. No additional details are available just yet but if this turns out to be true, you can expect to hear about it during E3.
