Possible Games Revealed For Microsoft's Kinect

Joyride TGS 2009 Preview

UPDATE: USA Today has since pulled their story on Kinect and its game line-up. Make of that what you will.

It's looking even more likely that Microsoft's Project Natal will be called Kinect, as the USA Today has put up a story on the device, listing the game titles to be available in addition to other info on the hardware. Rumored games include the Wii Sports-inspired Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, where you train lions and cheetahs, and the racing game, Joyride, which has been progressing in stealth mode as of late.

Come inside for the full list of games in the works, as described by USA Today:

"•Kinectimals lets you train and play with 20 different virtual cats, including a lion, cheetah and tiger.

Joyride, a racing game, lets players use their hands to hold an imaginary steering wheel — pull your hands toward you and push back out for an acceleration boost — and their bodies to execute jumps and tricks.

Kinect Sports has six activities including boxing, bowling, beach volleyball, track and field, soccer and table tennis. To serve a volleyball, you mimic the real motion; in soccer, you can kick the ball or do a header.

Kinect Adventures includes a river-raft time trial and obstacle course, playable by up to four players. On the raft, playing as a duo, you and a partner must lean one way or another to steer. Jumping helps the raft reach special areas for extra points.

Dance Central, in development by MTV Games, brings a So You Think You Can Dance experience home.

Star Wars characters and iconic Disney favorites will be featured in separate new games being developed at Microsoft in conjunction with LucasArts and Disney."

While Microsoft has yet to confirm anything, it's seems the cat may be out of the bag around Kinect. Again, we'll be at the Project Natal event tonight to see if we can catch anything more solid.
