Podracing added to 'Kinect Star Wars'
Friday 22 July 2011
Amid the flurry of new announcements coming out of the San Diego Comic-Con, Microsoft released the first screenshots showing
Kinect Star Wars' Podracing feature.
Force powers and Lightsaber combat had already been introduced, most recently during a demonstration at Microsoft's E3 presentation in June.
Kinect Star Wars' Podracing mode promises "recognizable pods and other unlockable vehicles to the Star Wars universe."
Hoping for a Millennium Falcon podracer might be a bit much, though.
Star Wars Kinect is expected on Xbox 360 Kinect in December, bolstering a Kinect lineup that will include Dance Central 2, Fruit Ninja Kinect, and Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.
Sony has a few motion-controlled titles of its own in the works: the Potter-esque Sorcery, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and the Move-augmented Resistance 3.
