Kinect Sports Rivals delayed to spring 2014

Microsoft has delayed the release of Kinect Sport Rivals. Previously set to be an Xbox One launch title this November, Rare’s debut game for the console will now arrive in spring 2014. While it will be playable for the first time at PAX Prime and Gamescom in August, a Microsoft spokesperson told Polygon the delay will give Rare extra time to polish the game and release it without compromising its quality.

Kinect Sports Rivals will feature sporting activities including climbing, wake racing, soccer, target shooting, bowling and tennis. According to the product description on Microsoft's online store, which recently priced Xbox One games at £49.99 in the UK, "Kinect Sports Rivals captures your likeness as a champion and thrusts you into sporting events against friends, rivals, and the entire world."

Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One will launch in 21 markets this November priced at £430 / $500. Its confirmed first-party software launch line-up now consists of Forza Motorsport 5 and third-party developed but Microsoft published games Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3.

    Rare used to knock it out of the park consistently, now they make shovelware :( There will never be another Wii Sports, not sure why they keep trying.

    Yeah. I don't think anyones too bothered about this news. I can't really imagine all the Xbone early adopters will be gagging to play kinnect games on their brand spanking new TV Console!

    Wait, so now both of the Kinect 2.0 games that were even remotely showed off at E3 are not releasing until after Xbone's launch in 2014... ...Microsoft wants us to like the Kinect, right?

    Hopefully they delay it, delete it and get rare to make a good game.
