Kinect Sports Rivals, the Xbox One launch title that outed the console's November release window, is no longer a launch title. Rare's Xbox One debut has now been delayed to spring 2014.

A Microsoft representative told Polygon that the delay was for polish, so it could release without compromising quality. It will feature soccer, jetski racing, bowling, target shooting, tennis, and rock climbing. At least some of those events be playable for the first time in August, at both PAX Prime and Gamescom.

        They really have no been pushing the Kinect that heavy for games, this is the only title I can think of. I am actually glad to see this since it means they do not just want to shovel a Kinect game out there.

        Most of the Kinect stuff that has been pushed so far is more of enhancements to controller based games. Look at DR3, and Ryse as examples. You can utilize the Kinect in both of those games to enhance your play, but it's not required in either instance.
