Mass Effect 3 Kinect Demo Coming Next Month
 
 

Mass Effect 3 is getting ready to take on the Kinect for all it can do.

The game is one of Microsoft's poster children when it comes to delivering on the promise that its motion-sensing, voice-activated camera accessory first presented when it was still known as "Project Natal."

The software giant said the technology would revolutionize games, it would be a new way to play, and it would make us think twice about what video games mean.

But like so many things, Kinect launched to the disappointment of many who said all that lofty PR speak was just hype. Kinect ended up being nothing more than Microsoft's version of the Wii Remote, with mini-games and extremely casual adventures taking up nearly every Kinect shelf in stores.

However, it seems the hype may finally be realized, and the latest Bioware installment is proof positive.

In Mass Effect 3, players will be able to shout out commands to their computer-controlled teammates, use their voice to toggle between weapons, and carrying on conversations with other non-playable characters. The feature was first presented at last year's E3.

The question was whether or not Bioware would live up to that hype and flesh out the technology even more to make it a viable part of the game. It appears the company has done exactly that.

And if you don't believe us, Bioware has announced it will launch a playable demo through Xbox Live on February 14, the perfect Valentine's Day promotion.

The full game will be released on March 6.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
