Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a new game entitled Harry Potter For Kinect. Developed by Eurocom, the title will be exclusive and available only to Xbox 360 gamers. Details are below.
HARRY POTTER FOR KINECT
COMING THIS AUTUMN, YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY THROUGH THIS EXCLUSIVE GAME ON KINECT
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Eurocom will cast a spell among Harry Potter fans of all ages this autumn with the Harry Potter for Kinect videogame exclusively on Kinect™ for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft .
Based on all eight Harry Potter films, Harry Potter for Kinect allows players to join Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as they embark on an unforgettable journey through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and beyond. With Kinect’s scanning technology, for the first time ever in a Harry Potter game, players will be able to scan in their own face to create a unique witch or wizard to journey through the adventures of the film.
In addition, Kinect’s hands-free and voice recognition capabilities allow gamers to cast spells using physical manoeuvres and by calling out spell names, offering an extraordinary, immersive Harry Potter experience.
“Harry Potter for Kinect will engage Harry Potter fans old and new by bringing them into the wizarding world as truly active participants,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Kids and parents will enjoy recreating their favourite Harry Potter adventures, from flying a broomstick in a Quidditch match, to battling pixies and duelling other wizards.”
Harry Potter for Kinect gives players the opportunity to experience some of the films’ most memorable moments, both as the relevant characters or as their own avatars, including visiting Ollivanders, choosing a house at Hogwarts, and confronting He Who Must Not Be Named in a climactic final battle. Players who master their lessons can also take on their opponents in competitive mini-games, or join forces with family and friends in co-op gameplay.
Well, shit didn't realise Dark Souls 2 had a graphics downgrade. Or PC version was shown before. Or something. So confusing: [url] (4 Hours ago)
@nostradamus: thanks for the technical comparison info, might just go with 360 then now. (4 Hours ago)
@Loakum: the game will support 1080p/60fps from launch. durante "fix" doesn't seem to be needed right now. One month away is the part that is worse. (9 Hours ago)
@Nostradamus - I'm getting it on the PS3, because all my peeps I terrorized since Demon's Souls are on that console. (9 Hours ago)
@Nostradamus - Yeah, I can't really tell the difference between the PS3 and XB360 versions. Obviously the PC will be better (after the Durante Mod) (9 Hours ago)
but it does in the character and enemies fine detail. [url] (9 Hours ago)
@Loakum: dunno, but it must be a two hand weapon mode only. ps3 version has worse AA, slighty more blurry, but not by much. textures are both horrendous on scenery, so it doesn't matter much. (9 Hours ago)
