Wipeout: In the Zone trailer shows cartoon pain

Kinect-powered obstacle courses under the spotlight

If this trailer had a face, we'd want to punch it for being so cheesy. It's for Activision's Kinect-controlled Wipeout: In the Zone.

In the Zone is based on US TV show Wipeout, which is the American version of Richard Hammond's BBC splash-fest. It will have players "running, ducking, dodging and wiping out" using Kinect, says the publisher. You'll even be able to take on the "Big Balls" that contestants seem to faceplant every weekend.

"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."
