Here’s that Gears of War Kinect Rumor Again

Gears of War on Kinect was a popular rumor last year, but it went away for a bit after Gears was a no-show at the Spike VGAs in December. But now it’s back!

Kotaku says they have sources telling them about a Gears of War on-rails Kinect game. They have a picture to go along with this report, and in that picture is a scene I believe is from early in Gears 2. Kotaku says their birds tell them the game “appears to re-use assets from Gears of War 2.”

They had no official comment from anybody on this rumor, but CliffyB was pretty evasive about it on Twitter, saying, “I’d comment on that Kotaku Kinect rumor that just hit, but I can’t find the article in their new confounding layout. Oh well!” Yeah, f–k Kotaku.

Cliffy’s previous comment on this whole rumor was “No Kinect in Gears of War 3,” so if this is something like Dead Space: Extraction, then he was not lying. This is probably what Gears of War: Exile is.

I do have one personal thought about this whole deal: the picture shows the player holding two fingers to his right ear just as Bender does in the game, and I think that’s really stupid.
