Beats stiff Kinect competition

Last night saw the BAFTA Video Games Awards held in deepest darkest London, with bright and breezy sensor-shifter Kinect Sports picking up the award for Best Family Game.

Four Kinect games were nominated in the category: Dance Central, Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports and Kinectimals, with Rare's sporting effort coming out on top.

Kinectimals lost out in the Technical Innovation category to Heavy Rain, and Dance Central finished behind Call of Duty: Black Ops in the GAME Award of 2010.

Congratulations to Rare, and give our Kinect Sports review a read to find out exactly why it deserves its award.
