Kinect Sports Easter Eggs, Tips & Tricks
I'm searching the web to bring as many information as i can here to 123kinect. I will add photo, video, link, etc. Added item will be mark with [NEW]
I'm gonna need your help to fill these lists...thanks

Conduct Crowd (stadium)
  • Raise both hands in the air and they will cheers.
  • Point your hand (cursor) in the sky and fireworks explode.
  • Move your hand (cursor) side to side over the crowd and they will perform the wave.
  • Applaud to the rhythm of music and crowd will follow.

Easter eggs
Tennis :
  • You can do a serve behind your back (spin around work too) : throw the ball in the air and when the ball start to fall just hit the ball but on your back, your arm has to be perpendicular to you and around your back.
Sprint :
  • Before the start, move your arms at other players and they will talk to you and move away from you.
  • [NEW] You can stop the computer from passing you in the lane on either side of you by putting your arms straight out to your sides, like at the start when the say "stay in your own lane". Good for Sprint & Hurdles (Credit :Zomb1eHeadShot)
Bowling :
  • Throwing the ball at the crowd make them scream !
  • Bowl overarm and smash the ball down onto the lane. It's easier if do the windmill with your arm. It may take a few attempts. You'll get the Wood Chipper achievement.

Tips & Tricks
Target kick :
  • Kick the ball just before the targets pop up. Almost guaranteed to hit a target by the time the ball gets there, saving a slpit second each time (Credit : JackAttack32)
Bowling :
  • Step 1 : Stance seems to be very important. Stand with one foot back (right foot if you are right handed), maybe a foot back from your front heel, my heels lined up since I have slight knock knees, but not sure if that matters. Your feet are going to remain grounded the entire time.
    Step 2 : Body angle. You are going to angle your shoulders slightly so that your throwing shoulder is back (right shoulder if you are right handed). I found that when my shoulders were square or turned too much, the ball had a tendency to spin to the side. Your shoulders will move a little during the throw, but not much. Don't open your shounders up so that they are square on the throw.
    Step 3 : Approach. Start by lining the ball up with the centre arrow. When you bring the ball back, it should move slightly so that the arrow beside it lights up. That's fine, it comes from the angle of the shoulders.
    Step 4 : Release. There will be a slight curve in the release (since you will be going back to the centre arrow on the throw), but finish by moving your arm straight forward and up at the centre arrow. The slight motion should give it enough of a curve to hit the 1 pin, but at a slight angle, preventing the dreaded split. Lean forward a bit, since I found that helped.

Pin Rush :
  • drpatazi, one of our member did 14270 on this one (he played for about 40 min). I throw both balls at the same time. Ideally, I like to get them rolling down the lane side by side without any spin.
    Here is a small clip of it
Achievements

  • Invasion Thwarted (Knocked down 50 pins or more in 4 seconds in the Pinvaders)

Anyone know how to serve behind the back? I've seen others ask but never got an answer.

Thanks for showing my videos legreffer. I will take some pics of my high scores for the leader boards later tomorrow. thanks for commenting also i didnt know of this site before, and I will be sure to pass the word on about it!

Later.

I have a Easter egg to add kind of..
Well for both sprint and hurdles when you are running (especially against champion computer for the achievement) you can stop the computer from passing you in the lane on either side of you by putting your arms straight out to your sides, like at the start when the say "stay in your own lane".
I figured this out when I was going for my champion track and field achievement. I know this is like the other Easter egg but it helped me win against the champion computer! If it helps anyone else great!

Later.
