Kinect voice control dropped for launch

Hey just thought I would let people know that kinect will be shipping without voice control implemented.

Here's some bad news for those of you looking to ahem, 'jump in' when Microsoft's Xbox 360 motion cam, Kinect arrives this November; voice chat and voice command functionality will not be included at launch.

That's what Xbox Live EMEA marketing man, Robin Burrowes told trade mag MCV. Apparently, Microsoft "will be announcing when voice control will be turned on in due course," says Burrowes, which is disappointing.

half there marketing is aimed at voice and then they do this! crazy lol

UPDATE: Microsoft has confirmed that Kinect WILL launch with voice control.

KINECT IS A PAPER WEIGHT, A VERY EXPENSIVE ONE TO BE FACT, 70% OF XBOX USERS ARE KIDS/TEENS MEANING THEY WONT HAVE A 42+ INCH TV, OR THE SPACE TO PLAY WITH KINECT?

Lol

I agree that the userbase is more than likely younger than the PS3, but Microsoft must have good enough evidence to sugges Kinect will sell otherwise it would of never been developed.

19?? Really?? The modern education system really is failing our youth these days.

Perhaps Microsoft want to attract some older gamers and are releasing kinect aiming at selling more xboxes with kinect, or is that too radical an idea ........
banned#16
Microsoft, They honestly need to sort things out, Why would they bring a new Xbox 360 out? they could just make a whole completely different Xbox, And there KINECT Prices need to be lowered, because they are not having my money :)

I think this is why the rumour started, no voice control for European languages - except English.
