The Best Exercise Games for the Xbox Kinect

Upcoming Kinect Fitness Games for 2011

Posted by steve on June - 15 - 2011 with 5 Comments

The recent E3 Conference in Los Angeles saw a huge number of announcements for new motion-control video games. It looks like a lot of game companies are betting on the Kinect–there will be more motion-control games available for the Xbox 360 for Christmas 2011 than for the Wii and the Playstation Move combined.

I’ve compiled a list of the newly announced games here. I’ll continue to update this list as I hear about new upcoming Kinect games, so bookmark this post!

Personally, I’m looking forward to MiCoach and Kinect Sports 2, and I’m very intrigued by Kinect: Disneyland Adventures, which purports to let you take a “virtual trip” to Disneyland.

As each title becomes available for pre-order on Amazon I’ll update this list with links. Given game companies’ perennial inability to accurately forecast demand, I’d recommend you place a pre-order with Amazon if there’s a title that really appeals to you so you can get first in line. One very nice thing about Amazon is that whether the price rises or drops between now and the launch date, you’ll pay the lower price.
