For the first time in an officially licensed Olympic video game, London 201 will support motion control in a number of different Olympic events. Budding sports heroes will have an enhanced and realistic way of competing in a number of events that are compatible with PlayStation Move and Kinect including 110m Hurdles, Beach Volleyball (Kinect only) and 25m Rapid Fire Pistol (Move only).
Over 30 Olympic events have been authentically recreated in their official Olympic arenas with a host of new disciplines making their debut for London 2012. Keirin (Cycling) at the Velodrome, 10m Synchronized Platform (Diving) at the Aquatics Centre and Trampoline at North Greenwich Arena are just some of the new events in which you can compete for that coveted gold medal. In another first for this iteration of the video game, London 2012 will take the world's biggest sporting event online in the form of global leaderboards. The leaderboards will track personal medals gained while playing online, with each personal medal won added to that nation's medal table. London 2012 will contain a number of game modes including single player Olympic Games mode, online and offline multiplayer and party play.
