Microsoft may have had some of its Kinect-heavy E3 2011 showing spoiled a bit early by a Eurogamer report, which pegs "at least 10 non-sequel Kinect games" for the show, including some aimed squarely at the "hardcore" Xbox 360 crowd.

Eurogamer's unnamed sources point to reveals of Kinect Sports 2 and Dance Central 2, a pair of Kinect non-surprises that we've already heard about in some form.

In addition to a handful of sequels, less obvious Kinect experiences appear inbound, including a new title from Rare and perhaps that "original 'core' shooter" from Microsoft's new Kinect-focused studio.

Eurogamer also points to a new open world driving game, Forza World, a title that was recently hinted at in a marketing survey forwarded to Kotaku. We're just a few weeks away from all these reveals, so make sure you're well stretched for the impending Kinect for Xbox 360 flood.

I loathe those who constantly question the Kinect's ability to cater to hardcore gamers. Of course the line-up we have now isn't spectacular but it's along the lines of the DS. How long did it take for developers to come up with some killer software for the hardware?

You can't come out the door throwing your cock around shooting out Halo Kinect when the fanbase isn't there yet. Microsoft and 3rd parties are playing it safe, now that the install base is there they can put more money into producing quality titles without risking a flop.

Games are different than movies, a movie can flop huge at the box office and still recoup by becoming a cult classic or doing well in rentals, game have that release week to make a big statement or they're in a bargain bin within a month.
