EA Sports and Microsoft have announced Kinect integration for the upcoming FIFA 13 and Madden NFL 13. The integration seems to be mostly voice commands for FIFA and Madden both, though there may be more to it than just that.
FIFA 13’s voice commands allow you to command substitutions, formations and tactics without pausing the game. Other features were also announced. For example, if, while playing the game, you curse loudly like many gamers do at some bad decision by the referee or anything else, you will be penalised by the match officials. Nice touch.
Madden NFL 13’s demo showed excellent KInect features, perfect for sports games, which is something what core gamers want to see from Kinect. The video ended with a pretty good touchdown by Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana who was demoing the game.
We’ll update with more news as soon as we get it.
