Barely more than a month on from the launch of Kinect Sports Gems, the range of these quickfire, instant access Kinect events is about to expand. December 25th will see another trio join the line-up as Prize Driver delivers Golf, Reaction Rally represents Tennis and Field Goal Contest conveys American Football to double the Gems count to six.
Skiing, Darts and Basketball are already available to play in the form of Ski Race, Darts Vs Zombies and 3 Point Contest. Like those three, each game in this second wave has been primed with micro-missions and ranks, offline photo leaderboards, 10 new achievements for a total of 50G and that bargain 240 MSP price point.
Keen to know more? You can explore the Kinect Sports Gems range through Kinect Central on the Xbox 360 dashboard. Just curious or low on MS Points? One of the Kinect Sports Gems is always freely available to play on a weekly basis, and with these new games added to the pool, all six will now cycle through free-to-play status. As before, you'll need to buy the full version to save mission progress, achievements and leaderboard positions.
Coming early next year: the third wave of Kinect Sports Gems to give the total another boost. Until then, have fun with our three latest additions, and enjoy the holidays!
