Mass Effect 3:
Kinect will allow youu to voice commands for dialogue selections and for directing teammates on where to go. “Garrus, go F*ck yourself!”
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier… The game they showed you last year! … But this time, it’s using kinect to allow the player to shoot without a contoller. Not sure how the aiming is going to with with this one, since I couldn’t tell if they were using head movement or hand movement to place the aiming reticule.
Kinect will be able to recognize the voice command for videos, and video titles. “XBOX video”. …. “XBOX Emanuel 5!”

Ice mother-fuckin T comes on the stage to play co-op Gears, and perform with his band, Body Count.

Kinect fun labs:
Scan yourself into your XBOX kinect. Become your avatar. “wow, that guy has sausage pants!”
Kinect will allow you to scan in objects and bring your “creations” to life. I have no doubt there will be lots of depantsed creations appearing soon on XBOX live.
