Homerun Stars first to feature Kinect and SmartGlass
Microsoft has revealed that the first title to feature both Kinect and SmartGlass support will be Homerun Stars for Xbox Live Arcade.
In an interview with OXM, Microsoft’s senior global marketing manager Peter Orullian detailed how Kinect will combine with SmartGlass.
“There’s another game we’re shipping called Homerun Stars, it’s an Arcade title, and it actually integrates Kinect. With SmartGlass you’ll be able to pitch or bat, and it’s not just tapping a button, you’ll articulate how that pitch goes into the batter. Someone stands in front of Kinect and hits, you can reverse that, and the person on SmartGlass can bat. It takes two great Microsoft technologies and couples them.”
This certainly won’t be the only time we see the two combined, as Corporate VP of Microsoft Studios Phil Spencer has said Microsoft Game Studios will support the newly-announced SmartGlass service with all of its future titles, including Kinect titles.
