Kinect and Halo Anniversary: Don't get 'hyper-excited'

Frank O'Connor said that the Kinect functionality in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary are not going to be a big deal. At all. In fact, 343 Industries' franchise development director says that it's not even something you'd put on the front of the box. 

"I don't think it's going to be something that people need to be hyper-excited about," he told OXM. "It'll be cool, but it's not something you'd put on the front of the box."

Then he goes for the save: "I don't want to downplay it, but I think of it like this - I use voice on Netflix and it's awesome, and that's what this'll be. Something that enhances you overall experience."

Again, it's not a big deal. O'Connor says that there's not even a set date for the announcement of these features.

What the hell is it going to be? He mentions voice in his Netflix comment. Maybe something like that? Any guesses?
