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.

Sigh! Poor Rare. Microsoft has given you a time bomb.
Not that I'm getting an Xbox One, but if I was, I'd have liked SOMETHING halfway decent I could use with the Kinect. I feel sorry for everyone who got those bundles.
This is going to continue to happen to Xbox One and PS4 titles just like it did with the Wii U. Games will be delayed and all these games that Microsoft and Sony are claiming will come out will be less than was originally thought. Happens with every new system.
I highly doubt that it's such a huge loss :P.
the pic they have for this article looks like Wave Race 64
i have a feeling there is a large demographic of people who...don't care at all.
Well I'm a Xbox fan. and did per-order xbox one, But Microsoft better be getting some Kinect games coming on release or they need to drop the Kinect from the have to buy list n drop the price, cause they can't (but they will) force us to buying the Kinect and Not have no games till a year or so down the road, that's not fair to gamers,
I only use my kinect with Madden, But my grandson wanted to play it last nite, so i downloaded some demos for him, and OMG!!!! trying to setup the Kinect up for a kid to play, is a pain the azz...I would never buy one if it's not with the system, He had no fun at all...
I really, really, REALLY hope the next Kinect functions properly.
For the new systems we'll have Infamous: Second Son, Call of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Titanfall, Killzone, Dead Rising 3, Watchdogs...There is also Final Fantasy XIV, Tales of Xillia, Lost Planet 3, Dragon Crown, Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed IV, various sports games...these are just a few I can remember that interest me. Good time to be a gamer!
this should be a pack-in, Wii Sports style, if anything. who even cares about this when there are so many awesome games for your brand spanking new new $500 game box?
I like doing these things without an xbox COLORADO LYFE!!!
