Halo Anniversary Will Include Kinect Support

Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming anniversary edition of Halo: Combat Evolved, revealed earlier this month, will include Kinect motion-control support, as the company says "Kinect will be important to all genres."
Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming anniversary Xbox 360 edition of Bungie's seminal Halo: Combat Evolved, revealed earlier this month, will include Kinect motion-control support. Microsoft Game Studios boss Phil Spencer explained to GameSpot, "As a first party we believe that Kinect will be important to all genres of games, be it racing games with Forza, combat games like Ryse -- even games like Halo Anniversary has Kinect integration." Spencer did not state, however, how Halo will make use of Kinect's capabilities. After the Microsoft E3 conference, Spencer stated that eventually all future first-party Xbox 360 titles will include Kinect support. Halo Anniversary is set to be a $39.99 retail release rather than a downloadable title, and will launch on November 15. During E3, Halo 4 was also revealed to be in the works, and was described as "the dawn of a new trilogy for Xbox 360" by Microsoft's Don Mattrick.
