    Xbox 360 Kinect voice control not available in some countries until Spring 2011

    From [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]:

    Microsoft has told Eurogamer Spain that Kinect voice recognition will be disabled for mainland Europe until spring 2011.

    The company confirmed rumours that the voice-recognition software will only accept American English, British English, Japanese and Mexican Spanish at launch this November. Even Canadians will have to wait until spring 2011 to be able to control the system via voice.

    Wonder if it's ok with dialects in Britain or if you will have to speak the Queens English for it to work. Could be bad press if people in Wales, Scotland and "up north" can't use it properly.
