In a press release, Activision's announced it's working on a Kinect game based on US TV show Wipeout, which is the American version of Richard Hammond's BBC splash-fest. Wipeout In the Zone, as the game is called, is coming this summer to Kinect on the Xbox 36o! Your work will be supported by the talents and hilarious commentary of the show’s hosts, John Anderson, John Henson and co-host Jill Wagner, Wipeout In the Zone is said to bring hours upon hours of fun and laughter for the entire family.

Kinect to test your limits
The game is based on the American ABC hit show Wipeout, and the game will have players " running, ducking, dodging and wiping out" using Kinect's full-motion capabilities right in their own living room, says the publisher. Wipeout In the Zone features over thirty outrageous obstacles that will test players’ limits in more ridiculous ways than ever. Players can try to run the entire course in one shot, conquering one challenge after another, such as leaping over a pool of water using the infamous “Big Balls” and maneuvering their players to avoid being pummeled by the “Smack Wall Sweeper.”

Sounds like a lot fun, and very suitable for getting loads of workout in your living room!
Perfect fit for a Kinect game
"The ABC hit show Wipeout continues to thrill a growing fan base of viewers with hilarious new obstacles. Everyone who watches the show wishes they could try the obstacle course - and now this is their chance!" said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. "The show is all about absurd movement and well-timed balance, so it's a perfect fit for a Kinect game.

The game will be available on retail shelves this summer, because of the premier of Wipeout’s summer season on ABC.
