Kinect Sports Rivals World Championship to give away $10,000 grand prize

Sure, pro athletes make good money. Hey, even e-sport players can rake in quite a lot of dough. But what about athletes that participate in Kinect-virtualized sports? What do we call those players?

The Kinect Sports Rivals World Championship will award the best "motion-sports" players with cash prizes, Microsoft has announced. The grand prize winner will win $10,000 in cash and a trip for two to Bora Bora, the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, or the Swiss Alps.

To participate, you'll have to register here. The competition will begin on April 8th, where top Kinect Sports players from around the world will compete for a chance to go to San Diego Comic-Con. There, they'll meet in person to virtually compete against each other in Kinect-powered sports-games.

Kinect Sports promises to have a bit more depth than Wii Sports, meaning you may actually have to be athletic to get traction in the tournament. You can read more in our preview.
