Rare: “Kinect 2 is already here”

The above claim comes from Rare studio head Scott Henson, dismissing the need for a hardware revision of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 motion sensor. Incubation software director Nick Burton added: “The great [thing] with Kinect is it’s all software. Yeah, there’s a sensor bar there, but everything is dealt with in software, which means we can continue to push it.” Kinect Sports: Season 2, which is due in October, puts greater emphasis on voice control, with one example being a virtual golf caddy which recognises 300 different phrases.
