Consumers across the country have a chance to experience extraordinary controller-free entertainment — fun for everyone.
REDMOND, Wash. — July 15, 2010 — This summer, you can be the first to try Kinect for Xbox 360 before it arrives on store shelves Nov. 4. Microsoft Corp. today announced that it is bringing Kinect for Xbox 360 to a city near you through the Kinect Experience mobile demo tour. Throughout the next 14 weeks, the mobile tour will be stopping in 32 cities across North America. From the California State Fair to the Mall of America, the Kinect Experience will let you be among the first to play Kinect games and control your music and HD movies and videos with just your voice or the wave of your hand — no controller required.
Only Kinect for Xbox 360 makes it possible to play in a whole new way by identifying your movement and body position to create a truly immersive entertainment experience. See a ball? Just kick it. Begin a movie by simply saying “Xbox, play,” or browse through a music list with the wave of a hand. With the Kinect Experience Mobile Demo Tour, you can hone your skills before anyone else by playing fun new games, such as “Kinect Sports,” “Kinectimals,” “Kinect Joy Ride,” “Kinect Adventures” and MTV Games’ and Harmonix’s “Dance Central.” Share the fun with family members and friends through photos and video captured at the Kinect Experience and retrieve your videos and photos from the Kinect Experience tour at http://www.Kinect.me, then comment on your experience and share your videos on all of your favorite social networking sites including Facebook.com/kinect.
The full Kinect experience will be available in North America beginning Nov. 4, 2010, and will roll out to additional markets by the end of the year. Visit http://www.xbox.com/kinect and http://www.facebook.com/kinect for more details on how you can be the first to experience Kinect for Xbox 360 games and entertainment come to life in a city near you. Kinect is also available to demo in all four Microsoft Retail Stores, located in Scottsdale, Ariz.; Mission Viejo, Calif.; Denver; and San Diego.
