Packed inside the wrapping will be a total of 16 minigames, including sports games Hoop Shoot and Darts, as well as arcade classics Rootbeer Tapper, table hockey, and others. To play the titles, players will use their bodies as the controller to manipulate onscreen events. What's more, users can use their customized avatars to play the aforesaid games.

In addition to local multiplayer, In Motion connects with Xbox Live to allow users to challenge friends over the Internet and also connects with Facebook, giving users the ability to pose their in-game achievements to their Facebook walls.

Game Party: In Motion is currently in development at FarSight Studios and will be released November 4, when Microsoft unleashes Kinect. Warner Bros. bought Midway in 2009, and acquired the rights to the Game Party series. In Motion is the first Game Party title published by WBIE.
