Considering Sega has the exclusive rights to create games based on the Olympics, a qualifying process wasn't necessary for London 2012. Today, the publisher followed up on its announcement last May that a London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games is under way, confirming the game will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation in June.
Sega Studios Australia (formerly The Creative Assembly Australia) is capturing more than 30 Olympic events for inclusion in London 2012. The most notable change to the experience this year, though, is that Sega will be incorporating Kinect and PlayStation Move motion controls into an unspecified number of these events.
The publisher did explicitly call out a number of events that will feature motion controls. These include the 110m Hurdles, Beach Volleyball (Kinect only), and the 25m Rapid Fire Pistol (Move only). Sega also said that it would be adding a variety of new events, including keirin cycling, 10m synchronized platform diving, and trampoline.
Beyond motion controls, Sega said that it would be including global leaderboards into London 2012. Leaderboards will track personal medals earned while playing online, and they will be tracked by global regions to provide each nation's standing in the game.
The actual 2012 Summer Olympic Games are scheduled to take place in London from July 27 to August 12.
