Kinect 2 Rumors

Xbox Kinect

Rumors of the next gen Kinect are uncovering some… creepy news about the Xbox peripheral.  Kinect 2 will supposedly be so accurate that it will be able to recognize lip movements, facial expressions, and voice pitches (with the mic) to sense emotional responses and anxiety levels in the player.  The possibilities a device of this type opens up many doors for the gaming community.  Imagine playing Texas Hold’em Kinect and having to pull a convincing bluff.  Kinect two could even be integrated into games not generally used for Kinect for some interesting tweaks on conventional gaming.

There are also reports that two versions of the next generation Xbox will be released.  One will be a cheaper, less robust machine, while the other will be fully loaded complete with optical drive, hard drive, and backwards compatibility.

  1. If Microsoft can create a gaming tool capable of pulling off the poker trick you mention, gaming is poised for a giant leap forward. Nice scoop.

    • I’m more interested in the advancement of the survival horror genre. I’d love for a game to actively keep me on the edge of my seat by adding new scares based on my reaction to the game.

      However, I hope this isn’t true. I’d rather see an accuracy patch to the current Kinect than feel like I’m getting the bird from Microsoft.

  2. Some say creepy, I say that’s just freakin’ awesome
