Sierra Spring Break 08: World in Conflict to feature voice control on 360, 90% of accents recognised

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 28 April 2008 12:58 GMT

Speaking to videogaming247 at the Sierra Spring Break 08 in Mallorca last week, Massive Entertainment project manager Peter Sydow, said that voice commands will be included in the console version of World in Conflict: Soviet Assault.

“The software is phonetically-based, so 90 percent of accents should be recognised,” he said. “I have some trouble with a couple of commands though myself,” he explained in his thick Swedish accent.

Hopefully the game won’t suffer the same fate as Brain Training, then.

World in Conflict: Soviet Assault comes to next gen consoles this autumn.
