Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The MastersEA SportsWant to play "Tiger 12" on the 360? You'll be playing with a controller.

In EA Sports' press release announcing "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters," there is a list of game features that includes support for Sony's Move controller, but there is no mention of Kinect.

I had the chance to ask EA Sports president Peter Moore if "Tiger 12" will also support Microsoft's hands-free controller, but much to my surprise (and disappointment) he said no.

"The team basically ran out of time from a development perspective," said Moore. "We were looking at how we could integrate the technology that is Kinect, which is obviously doing very well, and put it into a game that requires you to hold something to have that real element of integration and authenticity.

"Unfortunately we will not have Kinect support, although we will be on the Xbox 360."
