    A game that supports animals in real life? I'm in.

    I wonder what these challenges are that they're tracking. Seems like it would either have to be a separate game mode or the game could only be played online. AndI'd be interested to know more about how much MS is going to be donating. (And I'm sure you can cue people with snarky comments and letters turned into dollar signs, but no matter what the number is it'll sure as hell be more than I've ever donated to anything.)

    Either way, game sounds fun. Kind of like management sim meets Kinectimals. The cover art doesn't give much indication, but I'm hoping there's a fair number of animals to choose from. I've never played the PC game so I don't know if the selection is usually very wide.

    Actually, this sounds like it could be a load of bullsh*t, no PC version? Kinect enabled? Really?

    I can't believe I've never heard of these games before. Reading the article brought out the kid in me a bit, this could be a lot of fun!

    Jurassic Park version on the PC? Must find lol

    4 player zoo creation? Nice. Too bad all my friends want to do is shoot things. Would be hard talking anyone I know into playing this with me. laugh

    But I'm looking forward to it.

    This is great, I've always wanted to try the Zoo Tycoon games. The fact that playing the game will help animals in real life makes it that much more intriguing. I'm hoping the 360 version will be Kinect-free or Kinect-optional...the article specifically mentions taking advantage of new features on the Kinect for Xbox One; nowhere does it mention the 360 Kinect...fingers crossed!

    Never heard of this before but, it seems like my sort of thing. This is the sort of game I only play on PC though can anyone who has played the existing PC versions tell me whether they think they are worth picking up (the existing pc games not this obviously)?

    I never played Zoo Tycoon, but if its anything like Dino Park Tycoon, I'm in.
