Kinect Sports is a sports video game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox 360. The game utilizes the Kinect motion-sensing peripheral and was released in North America, Europe, Australasia and Japan in November 2010 as a launch title for Kinect.

The game is a collection of six sports simulations and eight mini-games, designed to demonstrate the motion-sensing capabilities of Kinect. The six sports included are: ten-pin bowling, boxing, track and field, table tennis, beach volleyball and association football ("soccer" in North America). Standing in front of the Kinect sensor, players compete by mimicking actions performed in real-life sports, such as throwing a javelin or kicking a football.

The game received generally positive reviews from critics and sold over three million units as of April 2011. A sequel to the game, Kinect Sports: Season Two, developed by Rare and BigPark, was released in October 2011. Along with its sequel, Kinect Sports has been released in the Kinect Sports Ultimate Collection bundle on 18 September 2012 with additional bonus content and extra sports added, basketball, golf and skiing.


All six events in Kinect Sports is local multiplayer support online, with a mixture of competitive and cooperative gameplay options. In addition, players can also take part in eight mini-games based on sports, or participate in Party Play mode designed to accommodate a greater number of players crowded together in the same room, divided into two teams.
