Mario and Sonic had their Olympic fun but now it's time to see what your inner world-class athlete can really do with Sega's London 2012: The Official Video Game.

There are 46 events spanning from the 3m springboard diving to weightlifting and there is no better way to experience them all than with Kinect for the Xbox 360. And for the first time in an Olympic Games video game, London 2012 will give players a chance to compete against each other online in cooperative events in the local multiplayer mode.

Kidsday reporter Johnny Ryan had a chance to preview the game with Sega community manager Kelle Parker.  London 2012: The Official Video Game is in stores now for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
