Six More Kinect Sports Gems Revealed

Six More Kinect Sports Gems Revealed

One for each sport

Written by Rebecca Smith (punkyliar) on 23 November 12 at 00:04 , updated on 23 November 12 at 00:04

Two days ago, the first three games in the new Kinect Sports Gems series were released onto the Marketplace. 3 Point Contest, Darts vs. Zombies and Ski Race are just three of the ten titles that will eventually make up the complete collection.

22/11/12 Logo


The bite-sized apps aim to give players a taste of the sports that can be found in Kinect Sports or http://www.trueachievements.com/KS-Season-Two/achieveme....htm. Players can step into the game and take on more than 30 missions for each sport. Each title has a photo leaderboard and, more importantly, ten achievements worth 50G.

Microsoft has revealed the next six titles that will be released. The following three are due to be released on December 25th:

Reaction Rally
22/11/12 Reaction Rally

This title appears to be based on the mini-game "Red Rally, Yellow Rally" from Kinect Sports: Season Two. With a red racket in one hand and a yellow racket in the other, players faced a growing number of red and yellow balls that could only be returned by the racket of the corresponding colour.

Field Goal Contest
22/11/12 Field Goal Contest

This title appears to be based on the mini-game "Crazy Kicker" from Kinect Sports: Season Two. Players had three lives and had to perform kicks from a variety of distances and angles. The quicker the kick was taken, the higher the score if successful. A miss meant the loss of a life, but players had the chance to regain lives by performing kicks from a much larger distance.

Prize Driver
22/11/12 Prize Driver

This title will be based on the mini-game of the same name, "Prize Driver", from Kinect Sports: Season Two. Over a time period of 60 seconds, players stood in front of a prize conveyor belt as an array of items passed with red or green price tags. The prizes with the green price tags had to be struck towards a golden star out in the distance and the value was then added to the player's tally if the drive was successful. Those with red price tags had to be avoided at all costs, otherwise the value was deducted from the player's total.

The next three titles are all due to be released on March 5th, 2013:

Ping Pong
22/11/12 Ping Pong

This title is likely to be based on the mini-game "Rally Tally" from Kinect Sports. Against an AI opponent, players had to try and maintain a rally for as long as possible.

Penalty Saver
22/11/12 Penalty Saver

This title is likely to be based on the mini-game "Super Saver" from Kinect Sports. Taking on the role of the goalkeeper, players were faced with a stream of penalty kicks from an Ai opponent, with the aim being to keep them out of the net.

10 Frame Bowling
22/11/12 10 Frame Bowling

This title is likely to be based on the mini-game "Pin Rush" from Kinect Sports. Players had 60 seconds to knock down as many pins as they could, with the option to throw two balls at once if necessary.

With the release of these six confirmed, that leaves one more title to be announced. As the series logo suggests, that title will be a boxing game. Although we can't provide any more details on the game content, the title will be released on April 3rd, 2013. All of them will be priced at 240 MSP.

It's cool they're releasing these for those that maybe just want a couple of them. Although for Black Friday, Best Buy has the Ultimate Edition at $25, Gamestop has it for $30, and Kmart has it for $30 Thur/Fri/Sat. This edition comes with 1, 2, and all DLC for both (Amazon is also price matching @ $25)

Love kinect sports but I dont want to spend 240msp for all 9 kinect sports gems.

With the math its 2160msp total. I would rather have a disc for all of these games rather than download each one.

Sold out when I was on there (not that I even saw the price anyways). People gangbanged the Microsoft Store, they were down to 3 or 4 different games when I saw the page, and none of them were even good.

drabik said:Whilst I appreciate the idea, I think that they are overpriced ... oh well. I'll get them anyway.Seen this quote many many times and never understand it. They are way overpriced and they are that way if everyone says the above, theres no point complaining if you buy them anyway.

For those to bought them both & all dlc - how about free free or a big discount. 800msp total (500ach) is more like the starting price

Also hate it when advertised as free. its a trial. trials are free.

Anyway for those who have bought some, how do they link with each other? as far as i can see theres that annoying advertising to buy other games/apps/dlc just like in KS1 & KS2. Do these allow for quick jumping from one game to another or do you have to dashboard to load another?

Now that I have a Kinect I may have to try these. Especially Darts VS Zombies, Ping Pong, and Bowling. Easy completions if nothing else.
