BioWare Interested In Kinect For Future Titles

BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has revealed the developer is interested in working with Microsoft's Kinect motion controller but promised there'll be Party Title cashing in and definitely no Dance Dance Krogan for Mass Effect...
“The new motion controls are very interesting and quite powerful. Phase one of those is the dancing, fitness and party games, the sword-swinging games. The next phase is where it gets really interesting when developers like us can tear it all down and ask “what can we actually do in a game like Mass Effect?” Can we create a greater sense of immersion during conversations by using gestures?"

“I think we probably could and I think that’s where we’ll explore. We’re not going to do a party game, we’re not going to do Dance Dance Krogan for Mass Effect.”
Zeschuk also noted that the developer would be looking to create hybrid experiences knowing full well that hardcore gamers aren't gonna give up their controllers any time sooner:
“The reality is it’s going to have a really positive impact. There’s that impediment of a controller but hardcore gamers are never going to give that up. It might be nice to see a hybrid of a controller used with additional gesture on the side for immersive elements."

“So we’ll see it go from family entertainment and then broaden out.”
We certainly have faith in BioWare's plans for Kinect.
