For some reason, Microsoft is insisting that the hardcore crowd will want a Kinect as well, and it would appear that they may want one sooner than later. A recent rumor suggests that a Kinect-based Gears of War game is due to be announced at the Spike Videogame Awards.
Epic Games’ Cliff Bleszinski has confirmed that this Kinect game will not be Gears of War 3. However, that is all he’s said on the matter. He has not denied outright that a Kinect Gears is in the works, only that it won’t be the next main entry in the series.
Now I’m imagining a compilation of absurd waggle-based minigames set in the Gears universe. Whack-A-Locust and Cooking Marcus for all! YOU are the chainsaw!
