Kinect Sports Rivals is an Xbox One launch game after all -

Play one of the game's activities at launch, at no additional charge

Microsoft's decision to delay Kinect Sports Rivals till spring 2014 caused a bit of a hullabaloo in July - with the possible exception of Fighter Within, it's the most compelling demonstration of what the new Kinect sensor can do. Good news, fist-shakers - one of the game's six sporting pastimes will release as a free digital "Preseason" trial alongside the Xbox One itself in North America, Europe and Australia.... read more

Awww Man,this is great news!! For me anyway :P This was a game i didn't even have on my radar till i seen the video back when Aofie got to play it. I was soooo impressed with the way it scanned her in then made IT'S version of her,i really thought that was pretty awsome an on what i'd seen there,i will be buying it when its out. So to get to play some for launch as the full games not ready is a real good move at Microsoft HQ,as Ed says,theres only really Fighter Within to show off a Kinect game,i was going to get that simply to see how Kinect holds up regardless of gamewise score but it doesn't necessarily have to be a Day One purchase now with them releasing this.

On a sidenote,Kinect is just a step away from fulfilling my fantasy. Evolve slightly from scanning an transport me onto The Grid an i'd die happy lol

I think that headline's a bit misleading guys...I was jumping around the room and then saw it was just one event (albeit possibly the best event)!

It's perhaps a little cheeky. I've changed it.

can't really see how wake racing will be good exercise - i just see it as leaning and a bit of jumping
when the sun shines - i feel the urge to eat apples

You should write the blurb for the box. :P

Really looking like this finally delivers on the promise of Kinect. Hope so, will be really good if so.

lol Think you're mixing it up with Wii Sports to be fair? This is just a fun game,its not about excercise. You might get tired if you played it non stop though?

no im not - wii sports doesnt have leaning or jumping - it just involves wild arm movement at most

'Tis looking less gimmicky and more like an actual game this time around. Definitely one to watch.
I don't care if a game is "the same every year." So is pizza. Stop buying the bad pizza. Buy the good pizza.
