Tiger Woods Tees Off EA Sports' Kinect Support in 2012

The first of many
EA Sports hasn't done anything with Kinect yet, somewhat surprising considering its unrivalled stable of sports games. The publisher will break that duck next year when it releases Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 for Xbox 360.
The golf game, due out in March 2012, will make use of Kinect's body-tracking and voice recognition capabilities in gameplay, though at this stage EA isn't talking about how these modes will work. We'd be surprised if it could compete with the accuracy offered by Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters on PlayStation Move, but we'll have to wait until next year to find out.
As announced at E3 2011, all future EA Sports games will support Kinect in some way, starting with Tiger Woods in March. Here's hoping the wait is worth it.
