Can't wait for this- just introduced the wife to kinect sports after prizing here away from Wii fit, she loved it, think this DLC might make her come back for another go? And a bit of competition for me!
We need more games like this on kinect!

The rumour is we'll see Kinect Sports 2 announced at E3 — we'll keep you posted!

Kinect Sports is a great game... but I have to say that unless I'm missing something, this DLC sounds like it should be free. Is it correct that all this does is give you some AI characters to compete against? What am I missing?

New opponents, 250G of Achievements and two Avatar Awards, but no new minigames.
