3 Point Contest Gets Screenshots

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Last week we revealed the existence of two upcoming XBLA titles, Kinect Sports Gems: Ski Race and Kinect Sports Gems: Darts vs. Zombies. The two titles were based on activities taken from https://www.trueachievements.com/KS-Season-Two/achievem....htm, but there was a third related title with a similar theme of which we couldn't bring you any details. However, Kinect Sports Gems: 3 Point Contest has now joined its two friends on Xbox.com, so we can finally take our first look at the game.

As suspected, 3 Point Contest appears to be based on one of the mini games from the "Basketball Challenge Pack" DLC. The '3-Point Hero' challenge gave players a rack of five basketballs as they attempted to sink baskets from a fixed spot. Unlike the NBA All-Star Weekend competitions though, players often moved away from the 3-point line to increase the challenge.

The three games are part of a new Kinect Sports Gems collection. All three titles carry ten achievements worth a total of 50G and seem to be intended as a sample of what players can expect from the full Kinect Sports games, a bit like how the Kinect Fun Labs apps were meant to showcase the capabilities of the Kinect sensor. They all carry a similar price point too -- Major Nelson has stated that the titles will cost 240 MSP each.

Ski Race, Darts VS Zombies and 3 Point Contest are all due to be released on November 20th.
