E3 2011: Mass Effect 3 to Utilize Kinect

BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka announced during this morning’s Microsoft E3 press conference that the third title in the Mass Effect series would feature support for Xbox Kinect.

As demonstrated at Microsoft’s keynote, players will be able to verbally commanding their team around the battle field and will have the option to navigate dialog trees within the game using their voice.

Mass Effect 3 is currently set for a Q1 2012 release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.


    Voice commands for dialog do NOT equal “control”. Plus you will STILL need buttons to shoot at things. Face it XBOXers…kinect is a $200 version of the PS2 “Eyetoy”. Enjoy your decisions and don’t bash on good functional products made by higher end competitors.
