Microsoft is promising 15 games at launch for its new motion controller Kinect, which hits first in North America on November 4. Those games include Sonic Free Riders, Dance Masters, another dance based title and at least four fitness games.

    I was determined to pick one up at launch for the sake of new tech but forget that. I need at least one game to play on the damn thing.

    Buy an Xbox, buy a Kinect and buy a game to get in shape. Alternatively, step out the door and walk around the block. Don't pay for the liberty of moving your body.

      Agreed, you'd be better off joining a sports club or becoming a gym member. Its free/cheaper AND you get to socialize with strangers. Improve both your physical and social fitness.

      Kinect - Wii.2.0

        "AND you get to socialize with strangers"

        You say that like it's a selling point for everybody. It's not. Many people who want to get into shape don't BECAUSE of that fact, they don't want to feel embarrassed showing their flabby sweaty bodies to a room full of muscley "beautiful people".

    I like how the Kinect Sports logo even LOOKS like the Wii Sports logo.

      Yeah, good thing Nintendo have a copyright on using italics in logos, they'll be able to sue the pants off Microsoft!


    Just watched the E3 Microsoft show, Dance Central looks pretty cool. I've always enjoyed learning dances, seems a decent alternative to going out to meet up with groups of dancers in the CBD and getting stabbed on the way home at night.

    The flood of sports and fitness games is amusing, but I suppose those are the easiest to come up with...

      naww. cheer up, buddy. the outside world isn't as scary as tv makes it out to be!

    Am I the only one who thinks Natal was a better name?
    Kinect makes it sound like a marketing spin for a shitty plastic kids toy your grandparents picked up from cheap as chips.

      I've always found Microsoft to have much better sounding code names than actual product names. "Project Natal" was an awesome name, but at least they didn't name it "Microsoft Dynamic Motion Sensor Plus!" or something...

    I also like the look of Dance Central even though I can't dance well. Even that nerd in the E3 conference demo looked competent.

    they need to make a decent soccer game... THEN I MIGHT ACUALLY BUY A NATAL.(idon't care what mocrsoft says i'm going to continue referring to it as a natl and hopefully it will catch on)

    i was afraid that the games were going to be like this. they aren't original enough and they are just the same old crap to make money and not to entertain the consumer so much. they have to stop focusing on how to make money and take risks on an off chance for more entertainment.

      Microsoft take risks, just after somebody else proves it's profitable... OK I guess that's not risk taking.
