Albert Penello, Senior Director of Global Marketing for the Xbox 360, has dropped hints in an interview with Industry Gamers that a first person shooter to take advantage of Kinect technology could be a possibility in the near future.
Quoted by Penello:
“The hardest part is really trying to make people understand the same group of people who built the stuff that they love now are working on this stuff, and it’s not about alienating, and it’s not about abandoning; it’s about expanding,â€ť Penello explained.
â€śThe first thing that comes to mind is the casual types of games, but I’d like to see what a first person shooter would be on Kinect someday,â€ť the senior exec continued.
â€śWe wanted to come out and make a statement that said, ‘We want to try and do something different than the Wii, different than wands and hands, something that’s magical, that takes away the abstractionâ€™, and I want a bunch of new types of games created.â€ť
Currently it is still no reassurance that Kinect will be used for anything else other than casual gamers, but it does at least show that the hardcore market is still playing on their minds.
What game’s franchise would you like to see use the Kinect device and how?
