MS: Halo: CE Anniversary Kinect support won’t “affect the core gameplay experience”

Tuesday, 21st June 2011 06:41 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Microsoft’s told VG247 that Kinect support for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is only “additive,” but that it won’t take hold of the “core gameplay experience.”

It comes as Microsoft dev boss Phil Spencer confirmed in an E3 interview published yesterday that the HD redeux of the Bungie shooter – being developed by 343 Industries – will come with support for the camera,

“It’s no surprise we’re exploring ways Kinect can enhance game experiences in authentic and meaningful ways,” said MS UK in a statement sent to us.

“The Kinect features we’re exploring with ‘Halo: Anniversary’ are additive and will not affect the core gameplay experience or alter our mission of delivering a faithful recreation of the original game. That said we have nothing else to share just yet.”

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary launches on November 15.

    Haha! First they need to stick “Kinect-Support” on every game, than they need to state that “it wont effect the core gameplay experience”. Every fu*king time, that is.

    Here is one hoping for headtracking. Still not over that they didn’t have it in reach. Would have sold me a kinect back then.

    If it doesn’t affect the core gameplay, why spend 150$ on Kinect? :)

    @2 Kinect wasn’t even out when Reach came out…it came out almost a full two months after Halo Reach…

    The only way I will buy a Kinect is if they do another price drop and the 250 gig Kinect bundle is too good of a deal to pass up, otherwise I’m fine with my older model for now…even though I have to use a butter knife to assist the disc tray in opening for me…lol

    So the best thing to say about Kinect implementation in Halo is that it will be insignificant and out of the way? That’s not really a good way to market your peripheral, Microsoft.
