14 Comments

LOS ANGELES--Branching out from Game Party for the Wii, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment set its sights on the Xbox 360's newest piece of technology and today revealed Game Party: In Motion for Kinect. Arriving November 4 as a launch title, In Motion for Microsoft's full-body motion-sensing technology brings sports and arcade games to the newly renamed hardware.

In Motion connects with Facebook. Prepare for wall spam.

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.

Its funny how the industry PROS are loving Kinect and can see all sorts of potential for this device but NOVICE gamers are constantly complaining about it. Maybe you are jealous you just don't own an Xbox 360. Maybe you are just jealous that the best Sony could do was make a direct copy of the Wiimote. All I know is that come this fall I will be one of the HAPPY gamers who gets to play all the hardcore games with my controller, but can have some FRIENDS over for a uniquely fun time with Kinect.

I feel bad for the PS Move, it seems redundant...too predictable as far as what you can do with it, because we've already seen it with the Wii remotes. At least Kinect seems fresh and yes, different from the Eyetoy. Simple words, simply understandable.

I think everyone's missing the most pressing problem here: they're still making Game Party games. A travesty like this must not be allowed to continue.
