Rumor Dept: Gears of War to have Kinect Support

As if giving that fancy motion camera away on Oprah, Jimmy Kimmel, and to Burger King customers wasn’t enough, Microsoft may be trying to push Kinect features into one of their biggest franchises: Gears of War.

IGN has what they state is a “reliable source” that has revealed a Microsoft strategy for the Spike TV VGAs. Gears of War, either the upcoming Gears 3 or possibly some type of spin-off or mini-game, will feature support for the Kinect. Cliff Bleszinski previously denied that Gears 3 would feature Kinect (Natal at the time) controls, although it seems like the times be a changin’ when Microsoft comes knocking and wants the hardcore to join in while bringing in the casual to a more dedicated environment.
