Cliff Bleszinski is down with Kinect. Very much so.

Speaking in a tweet, the Epic Games design director said:

“I think Microsoft just took a nice step towards ‘entertainment’ from ‘software.’”

Gears of War with Natal support, then?

He earlier added:

“Nobody has any idea what’s going on. 6 game journos on the ground floor all terrified… Haha this is kind of awesome actually.”

Microsoft revealed one core game, Star Wars for Kinect, during the event. We are expecting to hear more about the hardcore titles later this evening when the main press event kicks off.

Project Natal

  • Dance Central almost had its own hardware

    It’s hard to imagine that Dance Central was in development before Kinect was even announced, but Harmonix is now saying that the game was slated to have its own peripheral before Project Natal hit the scene.

  • Toulouse: Kinect is the "perfect name"

    Microsoft’s director of policy and enforcement for Xbox Live  Stephen Toulouse has said that he believes Kinect is the perfect name for the motion device previously known as Project Natal.
