Forza 4 to Get Head-Tracking via Kinect

Forza 4 on the XBox will feature head-tracking. The system will work by using the Microsoft Kintect camera to track where a user is looking and with that data, the screen will then adjust to show you what you are looking at. The system is demonstrated in the video below and shows a driver testing a car around a track with it enabled.

Although it sounds like a good idea, there’s a bit of a mixed reaction to the idea as some say it will only be useful if you have three screens, while others say that having three screens rids the idea of needing head tracking. Also, others comment that with head tracking enabled, you’d still need to look sideways back at the screen. Depending on how much movement is needed, it could either work well or be a waste of time in our opinion.

What are your thoughts? Take a look at the video below to see it demonstrated:
