The Kinect has been missing a successful, traditional franchise since its launch (Keyword: successful). But here comes Gears of War, looking to change all that. Supposedly, VG Leaks has some screenshots from Gears of War: Tactics, an RTS in the Gears of War franchise.
You’ll use the Kinect to draw a path with your finger as you guide your troops without the need of a mouse and keyboard. In theory, it’s an excellent idea, but I’m still a little skeptical.
Now, it sounds like this would be a great way to sell a new console, right? Well, the report also mentions that it’s in development for the Xbox 720/Durango/Nextbox.
Whether or not these reports are legit remains to be seen; the images are incredibly low quality. But it would make sense to kick off a new console with one of Microsoft’s premiere franchises.
