Kinect will launch this coming November, but for those hoping to experience the use of voice controlled actions with the hardware on launch will be disappointed. Microsoft has confirmed that Voice Control and Kinect Video Chat will not be available.
Speaking at Gamescom, Marketing Manager for Xbox Live EMEA Robin Burrowes stated to MCV that “we will be announcing when voice control will be turned on in due course”. It was later confirmed that chat software Video Kinect will also not feature as part of the launch and as with Voice Control, it will be available at a later date.
Kinect will launch in the US on November 4th, 2010 and in the UK on November 10th, 2010.
