Tiger Woods 13 Kinect Integration Detailed

Posted January 24th, 2012 at 6:15 pm

In a recent preview ESPN broke down the implementation of Kinect for Xbox 360 in the upcoming Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 and EA Sports has also rolled out a trailer of the features in action. For the first time a sim title will fully utilize the motion-device both in capturing the swings as well as taking advantage of voice capabilities.

Interestingly swings will take place parallel to the TV screen/Kinect placement rather than facing it with the side of the body – that will allow for the camera to capture the entire body and movement and apparently will translate with a much more accurate on-screen representation.

As far as voice commands it’ll be a lot like what I wrote about coming out of trying the functionality in Kinect Sports: Season Two. Voice can be utilized to make on-screen selections such as club changes, camera setup, or to ask for caddy recommendations.
