Rare: “We’ve just scratched the surface” on Kinect voice commands

Wednesday, 13th April 2011 14:09 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Rare studio boss Scott Henson has told MCV that voice commands will become increasingly important for Kinect.

“We’re going to make using your voice much more front and centre – we’ve just scratched the surface on that,” he said.

“The ability to say ‘Xbox Pause’ and it pauses is just the beginning. It’s magic, but it should be just like having a conversation moving forward.

“We’ll continue to advance and continue to make it better for both your body and your voice. I would say we’ve only scratched 10 percent of the possibilities of what we can do with Kinect.”

Rare is now fully focused on Kinect development. Kinect’s voice commands were first show in action at last year’s E3.

    Why is Rare acting as they’ve invented the hot water? Ubisoft did full voice recognition in Tom Clancy’s End War and you didn’t need a €150 piece of hardware OR an x360 for that.

    thats why endwar failed because the voice command barely worked.
