If we rely on the information that Microsoft has placed on Xbox Marketplace (which is usually very accurate), the second season of Kinects Sports will feature leaderboards.

Leaderboards is a feature that was lacking in the first edition and Kinect Sports gamers have been dying for integration of this feature. Rare seems to have listened to the players and decided to include it in the next game of the series. It’s not really a surprise since they publish, for 4 month in a row, the world highest scores of Kinect Sports, which they pulled from the xbox live stat servers. Unfortunately we do not have details on how it will work.
