Kinect Sports Rivals announced as Xbox One launch title in November

Rare has another core announcement for the Microsoft conference.

Kinect Sports Rivals has been announced by Danny Isaac as a launch title for Xbox One in November. We haven't heard that date before - perhaps he wasn't supposed to mention it.

Kinect Sports Rivals will feature the mini-games Climbing, Soccer, Wake Racing, Bowling, Target Shooting and Tennis.

The new Kinect camera will scan you and put you in the game, and not just your looks - apparently your skills, too, which sounds ambitious. All that data will be stored in that cloud and will be there for your friends to import into their game - asynchronous ghost multiplayer, it sounded like.

The new Kinect camera will also track your facial expressions while you're playing.

But the best news of all was that this isn't it for Rare's game announcements at E3 today - a game for the core audience will be announced during Microsoft's conference, apparently.
