I recently bought Need for speed most wanted and the kinect voice commands did not work in English (I live in Germany but I only speak English) ,I thought it was an kinect issue, so I went threw the steps to calibrate the kinect and the actual issue was
that the kinect work perfectly fine, the kinect only recognizes German language for the game. That's weird because this is the only game that has ever only worked for kinect that required that I spoke german. My question is that is the kinect and/or certain
games "region locked" when it comes to the functionality of the kinect? Anyone else have this problem with any other game????
In the system you can avoid this put the system language in english.
But in games they prepare for lookin in local market, to have voice control in english the games they have that option.
To avoid this you can buy games in america (uses sells shops sending to europe, always remeber that!!!)or in England.
I hope i help you and forgive my bad english it´s self learnerd.
P.S: I believe the culpit is your game, because a question i leave to you,
Your system in english correct?
And you comand the system menu spoking in english correct? (if can´t know the kinect starts up when you turned on your 360 and he reconizes voice comand in system menu!!!)
If response of all of that is yes, your Kinect reconizes English, if the answer is no and you buy the Kinect in Germany that´s is odd, because for sample the kinects sales in my country (Brazil) came in default whif english in the launch, but after the dash
major update of last year he acepts comands in portuguese (in theory i believe the voice comand is relation to dash language).
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
