There was only a vague hint at Kinect support during the E3 2012 Global Media Briefing event by Microsoft, but it’s definitely there for South Park: The Stick of Truth, as the game allows you to swear at Cartman.

What else is in store for us Kinect owners, is not yet known, but I’m sure we’ll find out later this year… as the game won’t be out until March 5th, 2013. Don’t expect too much in terms of Kinect support though, as it’s definitely not the game’s main focus.
