After six months and 27 games, for many gamers it's Rare's Kinect sports still getting the most play time as they strive to conquer world records, defeat new opponents or just have fun making the crowd perform Mexican waves. The whole game is a great demonstration of Kinect's abilities, and developer Rare would be foolish not to follow it up with a sequel. With that in mind, what would you like to see in Kinect Sports 2?

We've been taking suggestions on our and wanted to share our favourites.

There's nothing like a bit of relaxation after physical exercise:

Do you know Kung Fu?

: Basketball, improved football, kick ups mini game, tennis, kung fu, improved boxing, wrestling...

How about some winter sports?

I liked to see them improve some of the existing sports. Boxing is really terrible compared to some of the other sports.

I'd also like to see a longer race than just the 50m dash. How about 100/200m? And I agree with some of the other people that tennis should also be included.

Some kind of TRON Disc type thing where you fling disc then try to avoid one coming at you. Refine the Boxing, it's still the most potentially compelling thing you can do physically with Kinect...just make it work like it should with ducking and weaving and such...

Snooker. Although I have no idea how the actual implementation would be, but i reckon similar to bowling.
Netball might be a good one since you can't move once you get the ball - similar to soccer. You might even finally capture a female audience in a sports video game.

My family and I play almost nightly and I agree with the boxing comments- you should be able to move! Also-we would love to have the option to see the score card at the end of a game of bowling. When all four players are busy running around during a game (normal at my house!) you don't get the chance to look over the scorecard for more than 3 seconds. . . boo! BTW-keep up the good work Rare!

Snooker could be cool if done well, and I'd appreciate improvements to the boxing and football as well.

I'd love to see some sumo wrestling personally!

¿How about an Island like in Wii Sports Resort but much bigger?


8. thekng02 United States 07 May 2011, 02:09 BST

9. thekng02 United States 08 May 2011, 00:56 BST
