At E3 2011, Microsoft made it painfully evident that they were going to try and sell Kinect to the “hardcore” crowd. Microsoft used its E3 presentation to push Kinect, showing support for the motion-sensing device in upcoming games such as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Fable: The Journey. Curiously, the company didn’t bother announcing that the HD remake for one of the biggest Xbox games ever would utilize Kinect.
Kinect support for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary was confirmed by a Microsoft spokesperson to IGN who said “The Kinect features we’re exploring with ‘Halo: Anniversary’ are additive and will not affect the core gameplay experience or alter our mission of delivering a faithful recreation of the original game. That said we have nothing else to share just yet.”
