'We have only scratched the surface in voice recognition' says new studio boss

Kinect Sports studio Rare believes voice control will be instrumental in the future of Kinect games.

“We’re going to make using your voice much more front and centre – we’ve just scratched the surface on that,” Rare’s studio manager Scott Henson told MCV.

“The ability to say ‘Xbox Pause’ and it pauses is just the beginning. It’s magic, but it should be just like having a conversation moving forward.

“We’ll continue to advance and continue to make it better for both your body and your voice. I would say we’ve only scratched 10 per cent of the possibilities of what we can do with Kinect.”
