There have been various rumours floating around about Kinect's outlook for voice recognition, and it appears as though we finally have some answers.
Microsoft have told Eurogamer Spain that the product will launch with support for English, Japanese and Mexican Spanish. All other languages will have to wait until around Spring 2011.
They also stated that Kinect will actively lockout users in regions that have not been granted official support. Bummer.
