These Are The Games You'll Miss Out On Without Kinect for Xbox One
Posted by Ken Barnes
It isn't a massive list, so don't worry.
With Microsoft announcing a Kinect-free Xbox One yesterday, we thought we'd run through the list of available Xbox One titles and see exactly which games folks would miss out on, were they to pick up a Kinectless console.
As we ran through the list, it honestly surprised us exactly how few games would be significantly affected.
Barely Impeded - Games that provide Kinect functionality (generally voice commands), but that you can play with a standard controller
Angry Birds: Star Wars
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Dead Rising 3
Forza Motorsport 5
Madden NFL 25
Need for Speed: Rivals
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
Ryse: Son of Rome
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
Also, a few upcoming titles will be affected. Harmonix's upcoming Fantasia: Music Evolved will more than likely require Kinect for play, due to the nature of the game. We're expecting a new Dance Central title to be unveiled at E3 too, and that will obviously require Kinect.
Aside from those though, is there anything on the "unplayable" list that is really going to hurt anyone? We can't see many folks shedding a tear over not being able to play the almost hatefully-bad Fighter Within...
