Kinect launch games confirmed

Casual games ahoy

Microsoft's confirmed several of Kinect's launch titles. Don't expect any Gears of War.

During its E3 press conference Microsoft showed off virtual pet game Kinectimals, Rare's Kinect Sports, former Live kart game Joy Ride and Wii Play-alike Kinect Adventures - all of which will launch with the camera.

The Kinect Adventure showcase included a closer look at the river-rafting mini-game where two players shared a raft and jumped on waves to get big air.

On the third-party front Ubisoft's Your Shape: Fitness Evolved was demonstrated (yep, a fitness game) and Harmonix dance game, Dance Central, which is coming exclusively to Kinect at Christmas.
