Kinect Will Recognize Three Languages at Launch

There’s been some confusion out of Microsoft over just how much voice recognition functionality would be included in Kinect when it launches in November, but now they’ve finally confirmed the extent to which Kinect will know what you’re saying -- and the regions where it won’t. Speaking to Eurogamer Spain, Microsoft revealed Kinect will only recognize American English, British English, Japanese, and Mexican Spanish at first.
On top of this, though, Microsoft also says Kinect’s voice recognition will be region locked. What this bizarrely means is that even if you live in a country where one of those isn’t the official language but you can still speak it, you still won’t have the option to use voice commands -- and this includes Canada and all of mainland Europe. These regions won’t get Kinect voice support until a patch is released later next spring.

So sorry, every Canadian who can say "about" with a perfectly immitated American accent -- you still won’t be able to tell your Kinect what to do until spring. Kinect launches in North America on November 4, and Europe on November 10.
