Forza 4, Officially, Will Support Kinect (Box Art Inside)
This always seemed like a bad idea, but there’s nothing I can do about it now, as Microsoft has made it official that Forza 4 will be Kinect-able.
This is actually huge news. Right now, the biggest question mark in regards to Kinect is whether or not it can be used on “real” games, i.e. the kind of games the hardcore demographic likes. So far, there are no Kinect games that give us much insight into the answer to that question. Forza 4, though, (which was publicly revealed for the first time Saturday) will be a very important benchmark for the new accessory, and it will likely determine whether or not the hardcore crowd keeps scoffing at Kinect.
I guess we’ll find out in about a year. In the meantime, here is what Microsoft’s PR folks tell me is Forza 4′s box art. I’m skeptical.
