Kinect Joy Ride Sequel Ditches the Kinect

Posted on April 28, 2012
Category:

The Kinect-based video game Kinect Joy Ride will have a sequel, according to Microsoft. However, call this unusual: the first thing that is confirmed with this upcoming game is that it will no require the Kinect to play, just the Xbox 360 contollers. Hence, the title is edited to Joy Ride Turbo.

Looks like Microsoft has come to its senses. Playing a race game with no buttons to press or a controller to steer (just your whole body) is not only uninteresting, but also lacks precision.

The Kinect was introduced as a revolution in gaming, of what motion gaming is supposed to be played as players make use of their whole body and not a wand-like controller. But that lofty idea has gone to a completely different route, as hardware hackers begin to utilize the Kinect to more novel, non-gaming uses.

Joy Ride Turbo will be launched exclusively through Xbox Live Arcade, meaning it will not be sold at storefront game retailers.
