Kinect Sports Rivals could be Xbox One's Mario Kart, says Rare - lots of free DLC planned

Rare's Simon Woodroffe wants Kinect Sports Rivals to be among the first games you buy for an Xbox One - even a few years after launch. The developer has extensive plans for post-release support, he told OXM at a recent preview event, and hopes that the game's cuddly aesthetic will stand the test of time. (Kinect Sports Rivals, Xbox One)

Seriously? A Banjo driving game is gonna be more suitable than this game.

I can't see this having anywhere near the success of Mario Kart, sorry Rare.

It will no doubt do very well, but Mario well is dreaming. To be fair he did not say it will sell as well, but I do see it having a high attached rate on X1. Rare does a great job with Kinect

Sounds really promising, and the game just looks stunning.

Such a shame it isn't launch ready..

ive always had a soft spot for rare..kameo was pretty great and with ms restructuring the studio,hiring more good talent into it and giving them back the freedom they need..i cant wait to see the great things that could come out from these guys ....im getting this when it launches next yr..just the jet ski and mountain climbing make me eager to play this game and im certain it will sell millions ..good job rare...conker,banjoe,kameo sequels would be a nice too .

I completely agree, this could end up being Microsoft's Mario Kart...just like Playstation All-Stars is Sony's Super Smash Bros...doesn't mean its going to be any good though.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   475d ago
did read the article carefully. They are talking about it being the same. It about sales and success. PS All-Stars is no where near the original SSB.

free dlc.. somehow i have a feeling it will be already on the disc and just going to unlock it through time.. -_-*..

mario kart wii? on sales up till september 2013 sold 33.95m units

kinect sports AND kinect sports season 2 sold a COMBINED 7.81m units as of september 2013

then u look at PRE-ORDER numbers on the xbox one.. kinect sports rival is 8th on preorder numbers on the xbox one.. and 4th on exclusive xbox one preorder

kinect sports rival is nowhere near mario kart.. +1 on confidence though i guess
