Turn 10 announces Forza Kinect in development

Microsoft has just announced that a new Kinect compatible Forza 4 game is in development.

The game runs at 60 FPS and is controlled by steering with your hands and also allows you to move your head around to check out the car interior.

It looks awesome, and still in the works from Turn 10 apparently, so it will be a while before it’s out.

Check out the realistic artwork below.

    Controller-free driving? No thanks.

    Headtracking? Yes please, thank you very much!

    It looked stupid. Silly “avoide the cars” mini game and an entirely pointless “move around the car” mode.

    No Controller aye?
    I do NOT like that at all. Of course we know M$ tactics and why they are doing this. Controller free means they can make butt loads off peripherals to help you “Imagine” you are in the game….Kinect is looking sad, really sad.

    Maybe it drives on its own and you just steer?

    It looked like you just steered the car around the track.

    I personally have no idea how they would implement full driving controls using Kinect. Firstly you would need to be sat far enough away from the TV for the camera to see your feet and I don’t think Kinect is capable of detecting such small movements towards and away from the camera.

    I hope they have an interesting and innovative solution but I can’t help but be pessimistic. Just try holding your arms in the driving position for a short while, it gets tiring quickly because you cant rest your arms like you would with a real wheel.

    Plus when you play games like Forza with a real wheel force feedback plays a huge role.

    Camera control using head tracking will be incredible
