Kinect titles have gained some ground on this week's UKIE/GfK-ChartTrack Xbox 360 chart, with Microsoft's Kinect Sports taking the top spot on the chart. If anyone has any idea where this Kinect purchase influx has come from, feel free to share.
Microsoft must be really pleased with RARE because Kinect Sports has sold extremely well for a launch title. It also helps that the game is actually pretty good and a fun game to play with friends.
Kinect Sports is excellent. I normally do not play any sport game, but I could play Kinect Sports with my family for more than 2 hours. This from a guy that is playing Mirror's Edge now...
Have to chime in as well.... Sports seems to have appeal across several age demographics. Not tried online as of yet. And it seems to give my 6 yr old and his buddies a pretty good workout as well. Win, win.
Um Kinectafreaks? This is for 360 games ONLY. Here is the full chart that includes all systems. http://www.joystiq.com/2011...
"Kinectafreaks"... I usually stay away from blatant fanboy twaddle such as this, but that's a good one.
@Dog beliefs Did that help? Do you feel better now? All they were doing is giving their comments on Kinect Sports! After all, this article is mentioning how the game has broken into the top 10. Especially in a region where Kinect was expected (mainly by fanboys) not to do well. But you angered comment is well understood! This site has been bombarded with December's NPD sales and you probably just needed somewhere to release some anger.
Relax AAACE5.....I was just having a bit o fun. Seeing the gushing over all things Kinect by 360 fans on this site lately I just thought I would put this into perspective. More than one of the comments on this thread implies that that Kinect Sports is the number 1 selling game across all platforms. Where did you get anger from? I thought I was pretty clear in my sarcasm. BTW I cannot respond if you ask me something so send me a PM...since I only have 2 bubbles....used to have 6. Went from 6 to 2 from my comments on GT5 threads...which in my opinion were not fanboyish. Thanks dentz....I came up with it as I was typing. Feel free to use it as you wish.
Damn it even beat BlackOps now that is a real achievement, well done Rare.
Kinect Sports toping chartz in europe, not just US. This is done on an add-on which just launched 2 months ago. This must be some sort of new record. M$ is looking pretty right now with Kinect still selling after the holidays. Two worlds2 coming around the corner and we still wait to see what is comming next.
Erm no.. If it beat it total sales or beat it launch day then that would be an achievement but the fact it came out later than BO and FIFA.. This is no achievement.. The mass influx of these meaningless articles lately. Like MS outsold PS3 in US only and 1 360 game outsold a multi-platform game.. Months after that games launch.. That's nothing to be impressed about..
kinect sports is actually a good kinect game
for it not to be a bundled game and get on the number 1 and beat black ops on the 360 thats saying something.... i havnt played it myself other than the demo but friends say its pretty good with family.. so might ck it out.
I was going to get sports but decided to wait for brunswick bowling instead the bowling is the best thing on sports.
Bowling is the least played by my family on 360. On the Wii, the more played by a great difference. Volleyball and table tennis is a must. Most played by my wife and me.
Really, bowling on kinect is just like bowling irl. Now thats either good or bad depending on how much you like bowling lol...
Its a sad day for gaming this! the worst motion controller supposedly selling the most! all those 10 year olds are enjoying it SHAME! ill go back on my decent console and play some Mature games! aimed for Matures!
To each their own.... we like the device. Rock out with your games aimed for "matures" ;)
Opposite of casual does not equal mature or hardcore.
so you think you are mature? shame
@mjsmufc99: what nature games? You mean LBP and Eye Pet? You don't sound much older than 10 with that coment. Kinect sports is much more mature than any of those games and many adults have a great time play it. It is actually quite competitive and plays well online.
It's sad that a group of gamers want to keep gaming to a small group of people.... Personally, I like options!
@mjsmufc99 did you forget /s?
Kinects Sports is awesome! Great fun... and a great workout when you play the track and field.
I have to say good job to rare for making a quality game. I haven't played it myself but i've heard it's one of the best kinect games next to dance central.
...and the death knell of core gaming moves one step closer...
If I want hardcore gaming I'll look to my pc, kinect is great because it is casual friendly and it also fills a workout slot in my day. Yourshape followed by kinect sports or dance to relax is a great fun way to get my exercise. Then if I want I can do some fps on the pc. Sports is a great game, it just needs some more depth like a story mode or some rpg elements (for your teammates) and other challenges and it could start heading towards the core audience quickly.
