Does anyone have Kinect Sports Rivals yet? Looking to play online.

Is the bowling in this one "arcade" style or is it realistic like the last one on 360?


The mechanics are like a refined version of the original Kinect Sports' bowling mechanics; it's got less input lag and WAY more accuracy.

For example something that caught me off guard is that when you go to pick up your ball, you actually grip with your fingers!

You should've seen me ripping it to shreds initially because "God, it's not even holding the ball, look, I'm holding my hand over the ball and it just keeps dropping!"

Then a colleague says "mate, it detects your fingers, who picks stuff up with an open palm?"

I was simultaneously impressed and affronted at myself.

Well, I don't know if it's the same since I worked there, but at Rare you get a copy of every game you worked on (as do the official Microsoft sales representatives and retail relations guys for the purpose of promotion).

Beyond that, the only thing I'd guess is broken street date or piracy?

I mean, we only have the one promo copy in the office from Microsoft and we're a huge company. I'm not sure how an individual would have it already beyond the circumstances I outlined.

I received a bunch of stuff for promotional purposes, but can't show it off to the public until release date.

SigmaLongshot if you work for Rare, how do you boost start at the beginning of the jet ski race? I haven't been able to figure it out. Also can you tell Rare to patch in an option to turn the background music up while not in the game. I really like the songs they picked for it, but they are turned down to low. Also can they patch in an option to listen to those songs while playing the sports?
