20130918022304133575 Rare has announced that Kinect Sports Rivals, Xbox’s answer to Wii Sports, will be available in a free trial form at the launch of the Xbox One on November 22nd.  It will be called Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason.  The “trial experience” will come with the wake racing event, one of the six events that Kinect Sports Rivals will eventually ship with.

Originally, Kinect Sports Rivals was announced as a launch game, but Rare decided to hold off on releasing in order to put more effort into making sure the game was truly ready.  Kinect Sports Rivals will feature six events, including: climbing, wake racing, soccer, target shooting, bowling and tennis.  Xbox One players who download Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason between November 22nd and the 30th can earn bonuses like a “founder” player title, a Kinect Sports Rivals wetsuit, and a wake racer.

I'm an architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
