No, it's not 1st April
Fed up of saying "Kinect has no hardcore games"? Bethesda's just announced The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will get Kinect support soon.
The free update will bring support for up to 200 voice commands, including dragon shouts. Yes, finally you can shout "fus ro dah" and your Xbox will respond.
In addition to Dragon Shouts, the Kinect for Xbox 360 integration offers voice commands throughout the game including Hotkey Equipping, Follower Commands, and all Menus (Items, Magic, Map, Barter, Container, Favorites, and Skills). With Voice Commands, quickly create and load saves during gameplay and access menus and inventories. Skyrim’s Kinect for Xbox 360 Support also adds new functionality including special map functions, additional hotkey options, and the ability to sort inventory items by name, weight, and value.
Bethesda states the update should be rolled out later this month, so watch this space.
