A tweet from Digital Foundry suggest that Forza 3 will be playable with Kinect on the E3 show floor.
Elephant in the room: no Kinect price point reveal… Playable Forza demo should put paid to “Natal using 30% of CPU time” rumours though.
Racing games are one of those genres where controller lag could be a killer so it will be very interesting to read the views of those who go hands on with this title.
From Microsoft’s E3 press conference it looked like it would be a dumbed-down Forza experience with Kinect as you attempt to overtake an endless stream of slower vehicles. The head tracking looks mildly interesting though with it giving the player the ability to look towards the mirrors and ‘into’ corners as you approach them.
