Everything You Can Do With Kinect for Xbox 360 in Madden NFL 13

While EA Sports has mainly touted the ability to complete audibles, assign hot routes, and call timeouts using Kinect for Xbox 360 there is a huge number of actions that can be taken through voice commands. Check out the full list of them here through the images pulled from the demo. In total there are 128 different commands that can be given between the offensive and defensive sides of the ball affecting the entire team, single unit, or individuals.

Early response towards the Kinect functionality has been mixed regarding both usefulness and responsiveness. While I need to spend more time with it I like having the ability to utilize the voice commands in a supplemental fashion but it doesn’t seem to be picking them up consistently enough. Some are responsive on the first time when called out while others take multiple attempts and sometimes never get completed. The Kinect implementation is good for accessibility purposes as well but there just isn’t enough time prior to the snap to make many adjustments especially when it’s not responding immediately to the commands given.

    It’s picking up for me pretty well on offense but it’s hit & miss when it comes to defense. Hoping that it’s improved in the real game since I’m actually enjoying using it to make adjustments on offense.

    Hey Pink, watch the blitz! Brown 55 Razor, set, hut! Get open, get open!

    Yeah Ive been trying to figure out whats wrong with it. Hardly works when I try to use it.

      LOL

    I like to use the kinect to say a players name and automatically switch to him, it is very useful. Also when trying to man cover a specific player in zone. Otherwise its something cool i guess. I would like to sleep thinking this feature didn’t prevent time or workers from fixing more important areas of the game though

    IDGAF about Kinect.

    I love this part. This is the article where the all rocket scientists who own a Kinect stand up and say how “it doesn’t seem to be working right”. It works sometimes, but not all the time.

    Guys, its not the Kinect. Its you. You’ve had that Kinect for awhile now. You knew it was a complete ripoff long before you sat there and tried to use it do these silly ass voice commands in Madden. Your fantasy is now fully realized. Please learn from this experience, as it’s really not the Kinect. It’s you. You’re the ones that bought into all the Kinect hype about “you are the controller”, and brought the stupid thing home. So please, just for my amusement, go ahead and continue posting about how your Kinect doesn’t work. LOL. Too funny.

      I love picturing everyone screaming at their tv. I mean they can really put out anything these days, and people will flock to it. Just another “gimmick” for madden to profit off of.

      • Crimson

        LOL…for real. Too funny.

        No, you don’t have to scream in front of the TV. All you have to do is simply state things in your normal voice.

      The voice commands have always worked fairly well. Its a problem with Madden if that’s not picking them up consistently when it did for something like Kinect Sports 2 or on the dashboard and in other areas where it’s implemented.

      Actually, it works fine for everything else I use it for. Sorry for liking something you don’t.

    Yeah pasta is right on the money. Additionally, sometimes some of the things the announcers say actually get picked up as a voice command, like when one says “they appear to be blitzing here” and kinect automatically sets a blitz. Not a fan of it so far, unfortunately. Either way, not like I’ll be bringing my kinect to college regardless.

    Its even worse if you dont have an American accent. Im from Australia and it doesnt seem to recognise just about everything I say lol

    • Smartasp

      You guys over in Australia should speak English then. KIDDING. I still thank you guys for Emilie de Ravin.

    It was a very poor decision to have the rundown go to 10 seconds and not give the ability to adjust it. It’s just not enough time sometimes to use even one whole command given how poorly it picks up at times.

    I do like the idea of it though. When it works it’s pretty cool.

    • SexyRexyRyan8

      Go to setting to can turn acclerated clock off lol. People don’t even look sometimes and complain.

      • Chad’s Atomic Headbutt

        Can you change the accelerated clock in the demo?I don’t think you can

        • http://www.facebook.com/zeb.struble Zeb Struble

          you can, you just have to do it after the game starts

      • Ryan

        It wasn’t so much a complaint as a statement. I just assumed that since you couldn’t change it pregame that it was locked out in the demo. That’s what I get for ASSuming.

    Could anyone tell me why my xbox live is giving me status code: 8C23002 and i can’t download the madden 13 demo, does it only download to kinect xbox systems?

    • Kenny

      you have Xbox Live Silver right? You’d need Gold.

      Theres a free Gold weekend coming up starting tomorrow I think so you’ll be able to download it then.

      • kaylab44

        I had just purchase a 3 months prepaid xbox live card and that automatic change my silver into gold on xbox live?

        • YouNeedTo

          Buy a goddamn PS3.

  • hToEuXsAtNoSn

    I wish they would have made it work thru your headset for us non kinect owners. Maybe it would even pick up our voice better.

    • Nov

      That’s not something headsets are able to do. They dont have the capability of processing voice commands.

  • Rm7280

    Here’s where they waste development money

    • jake

      so 2k sports is wasting development money too huh?

      a lot of people have kinect. nothing wrong with adding features for it.
