What is Kinect's launch line-up?

UPDATED with European info.

Update: Microsoft has two extra games prepared for the European launch of Kinect on 10th November. These are Get Fit with Mel B (SouthPeak) and Dance Paradise (Universal).

The European launch line-up looks like this:

Available on 10th November (European Kinect launch)

  • Kinect Adventures
  • Kinect Sports
  • Kinectimals
  • Your Shape: Fitness Evolved
  • Dance Central
  • The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout
  • DanceMasters

Available on 26th November

  • Game Party: In Motion
  • Get Fit With Mel B
  • Dance Paradise
  • Sports Island Freedom

Original story: The Xbox 360 goes hands-free on 10th November with the launch of Project Natal sorry Kinect.

But what games can you buy for it on launch day?

These 17, according to Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb.

Incidentally, Hryb said that total is one less than Microsoft had ready for the US launch of the Xbox 360. And that's another example of Microsoft comparing Kinect to a console launch.
