    I really hope this isn't the reason for the delay!

    I can see how using gestures to activate different powers and abilities might be good. Not sure what else they might use it for. Sex scenes, perhaps?

    It might be interesting to play on the Kinect, but I wouldn't say better.
    There would probably be many times in large fire-fights where the gestures wouldn't be picked up properly and you'd fail to do the attacks you intended on.

    Someone else said 'face capture' for character creation. Sounds more logical.

    I know exactly what this will be used for.
    Remember how you could "activate" dance floors in the frist two games?
    Yep... dancing minigame.... EVERYBODY DO THE SHEPARD!

    I heard the PC version comes with a dance mat. :)

    It could be useful in combination with a controller, it could even be done well.
    Sadly, I see neither happening. Less inclined to finish the 2nd as well.

    I'm hoping: The Normandy's UI.

    Yeah that's what I thought. That would be ok although I like default shepherd.

    @CardJoe

    I dunno, I mean wouldn't you have to put down the controller to use the ship UI? Seems like a hassle to me.

    It's used for physically moving about in the xBox version.

    I.e., if you want to leave a room in the game, you have to leave the room in real life.

    Likely just a default stock banner? Don't all Kinect enabled games say that?

    The fact that it will be optional means it shouldn't affect the main gameplay...

    ....but if it turns out to be any good (unlikely!!) and improves the gameplay then it will be a bonus for us Kinect owners.

    That was my first thought as soon as I saw the banner. I wouldn't have thought it would be anything too creative with it being fully multi plat now.
