Yesterday we had some news about a possible Microsoft reveal at E3 and a new Fable game. Today we have news of a Microsoft press conference rehearsal for E3 2011, and more rumors.

A recent image surfaced of the box art for Mass Effect 3 with Kinect compatibility, which led to stories circulating of the game having some Kinect features according to Matt Furtado of examiner.com. Now some more evidence has come to light supporting these stories.

EA are with Microsoft for the E3 press conference rehearsal preparing for the big event, with a big focus on Kinect titles for both casual and hardcore gamers. Now David Silverman of EA has tweeted that he was in the green room waiting for the Microsoft rehearsal.

Mass Effect 3 is set to come out on the PS3 and PC bedsides the Xbox360, but news of the green room has led many to think of the Kinect. If the game does support the Kinect will it be just for voice commands or maybe it could be used for navigation?

These features would not change the core game play much but will make the game more interactive for the player. And if the Kinect is supported will this mean the PlayStation Move be incorporated in some way. Would you like to see the Kinect supported in Mass Effect 3?
