Voice Studio App Released for Kinect (US ONLY)

Voice Studiois an app that functions for Microsoft testing, much like last year's Xbox LIVE Labs. This time around, they're testing the Kinect's voice recognition, so you'll obviously need a Kinect to use this App. As anyone who has played Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, only to say 'hello' to someone thus inexplicably tossing a grenade and killing your co-op buddy in the process can attest to, this needs to be tested, so the more people that get in on this, the better that recognition will be (and the less your co-op buddies will get killed).

You can download Voice Studio from the dashboard. It will ask you to say hundreds of phrases over eight "tracks" and... that's pretty much it. It contains four achievements worth 50G, as well as avatar awards. It appears to only be available from the US Dashboard at the moment, though we'll let you know if it becomes available elsewhere.

FIFA Street Returns in 2012

Fifa Street 2012

EA Sports has announced that it has an all-new FIFA Street title in development at FIFA studio EA Vancouver. It's unsurprisingly just called FIFA Street and apparently it'll bring an entirely new brand of flair and football to the series.

From "intense football action" to "freeflowing" trick and flair of Brazil, FIFA Street is looking to be the most authentic street football game yet, with motion-captured tricks from top tricksy footballers and the FIFA 12 Impact Engine. Featuring 35 environments including London, Tokyo, Rio, Shanghai, Paris and more, FIFA Street also includes licensed teams, players and all of the usual FIFA trimmings.

FIFA Street will also support connectivity with EA Sports Football Club, where you can keep track of your FIFA progress, and support for the EA Sports Season Ticket, so you can download the game three days early. FIFA Street is out in early 2012.
