MS @ E3 11: Kinect support added to Madden, Mass Effect 3, more

Peter Moore returned to the E3 stage for a Microsoft Press Conference to announce that four EA Sports titles will receive Kinect support in the next year.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, Madden NFL 12, FIFA Soccer 12 and an unnamed fourth game will add Kinect features including voice recognition. Moore also revealed that other EA games will feature Kinect support including The Sims 3: Pets and Mass Effect 3.

BioWare’s Ray Muzyka took the stage and showed off a “Kinect augmented” Mass Effect 3 demo where players can use voice recognition to actually speak Shepard’s lines. Shepard can also use Kinect to give orders to his team.

They were followed by Ubisoft, who showed off the Kinect features of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, including a gun creation tool known as “Gunsmith.” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillomont confirmed that all future Tom Clancy games would feature Kinect support.

More from the Press Conference soon.
