Kinect Sports developed by Rare, has lag issues

Monday, 14th June 2010 12:23 GMT By Joe Anderson


Kinect Sports, which seems to be an Xbox 360 version of Wii Sports, has been developed by Rare.

The game includes six activities including boxing, bowling, beach volleyball, track and field, football and table tennis.

During a hands on, however, Eurogamer revealed that lag is present in the game, plus any other demos the site seen with Kinect.

Rare’s Nick Burton said, however, that the latency for Kinect Sports is at 150ms on top of TV lag. However, Burton added that lag problems “hasn’t been an issue during development” according to EG.

No solid date has been revealed for Kinect or Kinect Sports, which we presume will be a launch title. We should find out dates tonight.

    It was inevitable.

    I’m looking forward to it, given the right pricing Kinect will be in my home for the family to enjoy.

    Actually… if I’m off to Uni it will be for me and my drunken friends to use whilst failing our course.

    I’m just looking forward to the core Kinect games that will be shown at tonights E3 briefing.

    Anyone who thought that last nights ‘unveiling’, which was billed as an ALL AGES affair, was shit because there were no core games there, really needs to learn how to read.

    They weren’t targetting our demographic. If we don’t get any semi-decent core Kinect titles tonight, bring on the flame :)

    @4 Need to shut up for a while, my little sister is at home, so… Need to look after her ;)
    But MS press conference i won’t miss anyway, but i’m not so pumped now really.

    I think next will be Sony and it can be the same crap…

    @5 so you sure they will show Core games? 1-2 i think, but not more.
    The problem is how they presented it. With fake actors and e.t.c. Stupid name.
