Next Harry Potter game on 360 will have Kinect support

For all the Harry Potter fans who spend their free time waving their arms around and imagine they're performing spells in Hogwarts, this game is for you.

Yesterday Microsoft showed off a demo of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1 for the Xbox 360. At least part of the game will have support for Kinect motion controls.

The relatively short demo showed James and Oliver Phelps, two stars from the movie, moving their arms to match on-screen commands that allowed them to perform various spells.

It's still unclear how much involvement Kinect will have with the final game, but this is good news for the 360's motion peripheral. To date, everything shown for Kinect has been a series of bland mini-games and boring fitness titles. This is the first real big adventure game to show off Kinect to such an extent.

The game should be coming out somewhat close to the launch of Kinect so it will likely grab a lot of the early adopter hype.
