Since the launch of Kinect for the Xbox 360 back in November, there’s been a lack of “hardcore” games that take advantage of the sensor’s motion tracking controls. Games like Kinectimals and Kinect Sports are fun, but they’re not for serious gamers. If a new marketing survey for Forza Motorsport 4 is any indication of what is to come for the racing series, then gamers might finally have a game that isn’t gimmick. Or is it? According to the survey obtained by game blog Kotaku, Forza 4 will allow casual gamers to jump into a race “simply by holding [their] hands at 10 and 2.” The survey specifically says that the controls would be for “casual” gamers. So there you have it, hardcore gamers need not apply, unless you’re of the uber hardcore gaming type who loves a challenge. Wii gamers will know that mastering motion controls in Mario Kart Wii is not easy – it’s serious business, with only the really skilled showing off their stuff in online races. In addition to the news that Forza 4 will sport Kinect controls, the game is also said to be 10 times prettier than Forza 3. For what it’s worth, it better be, now that the PlayStation 3′s pure simulation racing game, Gran Turismo 5‘s finally made it out of six years of development time.
