On the face of it, Microsoft seemingly has the better launch line-up for next-gen titles. Ryse, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 and Killer Instinct all have the potential to be great games, and make the PlayStation 4’s roster of Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack and DriveClub look a little lackluster. Of course the launch weeks are only a drop in the ocean when compared to the lifetime of a console, so it remains to be seen which system will have the better games library further down the line.
One Xbox One launch game which Microsoft will not be boasting about however is Kinect Sports Rivals, as it has been delayed until Spring 2014. A Microsoft representative confirmed the delay to website Polygon, saying that the game was pushed back so developer Rare had extra time to polish the title before release.
Despite not featuring on many gamers most wanted list, Kinect Sports Rivals was at least an opportunity to see how much improved the Kinect v2.0 will be, as all of the other titles that work with it currently only seem to focus on voice commands. It would have been interesting to see whether or not it works in an improved way for full gameplay. Kinect Sports Rivals will however be playable at Gamescom and hopefully TGS, so it wont be too long before we can bring you some hands-on experiences.
