Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to include Kinect support

As part of Microsoft's Kinect-centric extravaganza during the opening moments of its E3 2011 press conference, Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was announced to include both gesture and voice recognition. A particularly neat demo saw a player navigating a weapon customization system using a wave of his arms, tearing apart guns and putting them back together, Minority Report-style. Players can also give commands in this menu -- like "Randomize," to automatically put a weapon together.

That's just the tip of the iceberg -- the demo showed a virtual testing facility, in which players can fire at targets using only Kinect-detected gestures. It looked pretty smooth, though it's unclear if the control scheme will be available in the core game as well. The demo also included a promise: All future Tom Clancy games will include Kinect support.
