As reported on Eurogamer in a recent interview with game designer Victor Lugo, Madden NFL 13 will have over 6,000 voice commands at the disposal of Xbox 360 gamers. Among the many terms and words that can be shouted at the Kinect, the designer mentioned something called “dynamic grammars”.
As Lugo summarized, “What dynamic grammars do is take text and dynamically load it in, the name of the characters you have, your custom audibles and basically uses phonics to sound it out.”
What does this mean? Apparently, gamers can type their names into the game and be able to say them in a command. This also extends to the ability of implementing custom audibles, giving players some free reign to set unique commands.
To what extent does this work? We aren’t quite certain now, but we’ll know soon enough as that August 28th release date nears.
