E3: Four EA Sports games with Kinect support in next year

Get ready to get in the game with EA Sports.

At Microsoft’s E3 press briefing this morning, EA Sports president Peter Moore came out on stage and announced that the sports mega-publisher will be augmenting some of its biggest upcoming games with Kinect support. Four games launching in the next 12 months will feature Kinect integration: Madden NFL 12, FIFA 12, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, and an as-yet-unannounced title. (My money — and Max Scoville’s — is on a new Fight Night game.)

As for the functionality that Kinect might offer, Moore hinted at being able to call audibles in Madden with your voice, and swinging a golf club in Tiger Woods. That could be fun… right?
