Matter, Gore Verbinski’s Kinect-powered, Xbox Live Arcade-exclusive, has been cancelled.

Verbinski, whose day job is directing such films as Pirates of the Caribbean and Rango, has been working alongside Blind Wink Games on the title, which was revealed at E3 2012.

Now, however, it has been canned. "Microsoft Studios is no longer pursuing this title," the platform holder told Joystiq.

Not too much was known about Matter. Here's the announcement trailer.

If this hadn't been a Kinect title I might have been disappointed. The video made it look like Guity Spark vs. the Prometheans...

Graphics look nice but I think gameplay gonna be medicore or something just like near every Kinect titles came with gimmicky control and gameplay using Kinect. Oh well I don't care about gimmicky Kinect. I already dump Kinect when got Wii U last christmas. Not dump but I mean trade in it of course cos Kinect show nothing insterested for long time since launched Kinect.

Dancing and fit games not my type of games but yeah most of them are good. Lol

I will never support Kinect anymore even next Xbox too. I love normal controller and hardcore gaming so far!! :)

It's almost as if the Kinect doesn't MATTER anymore.
