Mass Effect to have Kinect as a key feature for Xbox

E3 is chocka full of goodness and the lastest version of Mass Effect

will be integrated with Kinect

- you'll be able to make all those conversation choices you have by actually speaking the line you want to hear. Check out this video demonstration from E3:

Game Informer described the demo as thus: The demonstration began with Shepard engaging Salarian scientist Mordin about the last female Krogan alive. The summarized responses in the player's conversation wheel were spoken by the demonstrator, prompting Shepard to say the full response in game. Shepard assured the Krogran female that he would do everything he could to keep her alive.

Following that, an enemy assault hits Shepard and his crew, prompting the commander, Liara, and Garrus to take up defensive positions. Kinect also allows players to shout commands like "Liara front," and "Liara Singularity," causing Liara to run to the front of the room and launch a singularity, creating a mini black hole to disrupt the enemies. Shepard then ran up to one of the enemies and annihilated him with a new melee attack - a type of energy sword-style slash that reminded me of the brutal Halo weapon. Bioware promises that the tactical advantage of Kinect will be huge.
