The Xbox 360 version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted could include Kinect support, a new trailer for the game has suggested.

The trailer, which you can see below, uses a purple case to display the Xbox 360 version - the colour typically used to differentiate Kinect games from standard controller-based titles.

The purple 'Better with Kinect' banner, meanwhile, also features on the game's packshot.

Of course, this could be a mistake. Packshots released previously for Most Wanted do not feature the 'Better with Kinect' banner.

'Better with Kinect' titles don't usually come packaged in purple cases, either.

If true, though, this would be the first time a Need For Speed title has featured Kinect support.

We'll contact EA for clarification on Monday.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

Hmmm... I always did say Test Drive Unlimited 2 could be improved with Kinnect... assuming its involvement was limited to making obscene gestures to other racers/moronic drivers on the road, so as to either enrage (= race challenge/vendetta) or intimidate. Hell, even s a means to taunt other live players! :D

That mechanic could work very well here! :p

Isn't it time they started putting the Better in inverted commas?

'Better' with Kinect*
