The lights are on
The Xbox One launch lineup is still a work in progress, as evidenced by a new delay that will push Kinect Sports Rivals from day one into 2014.The website Polygon broke the news, receiving official word from Microsoft that Kinect Sports Rivals has been delayed and will not available for launch. Some retailers (including Game Informer's parent company Gamestop) had been selling bundles of Xbox One launch units packaged with Kinect Sports Rivals, so it will be interesting to see how those orders are filled.The game, developed by Rare, will be shown at the upcoming Gamescom convention in Germany and will be playable at the show.Our Take:I'll be honest; I'm not exactly losing sleep over the delay of this game. However, I do think it's a loss for the Xbox One launch lineup. By including Kinect in every system, the company is essentially forcing people to buy a Kinect, and – in my mind – it would be a good move to have as many titles available that utilize the peripheral as possible. Also, I am intrigued by some of the game's new activities, especially wake racing.

oh no i'm devastated
"The game, developed by Rare" This is the only part of this article people are sad about
I'm not that sad over this but I do know that launch titles mean alot so... Dang.
Um...that's too bad...?
Who else isn't disappointed?
i dont cae for this game
they ruined rare
Yup because everyone was going to buy an Xbox One JUST for game. I can hear the devastated cries bellowing now!
Nooooooooooo! Jk Kinect games are poop. I don't have much interest or hope for Kinect 2.
This isn't all that disappointing. I'm actually rather glad. I'm already picking up AC4, Battlefield 4, Destiny, Fantasia and Watchdogs at or near the launch, so this is actually a relief to my wallet.
They could have at least said why it was delayed. Some sort of information would have been nice.
