Kinect Going On Tour

Microsoft’s hype machine has been working pretty hard when it comes to Kinect, even making multiple appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Despite this, many gamers are still very skeptical of the new add-on, questioning lag, how many people it can recognize, or if it will even be fun to use. In an attempt to remedy this Microsoft is hitting the road and bring the device to the masses four months early so we can all get a chance to try it out. Alongside setting up demo units in their retail stores, two teams will be heading out and presenting the Kinect Experience mobile demo at various cities across the country. Check out the schedule below to see when you can try it out for yourself.

  • I broke down during a moment of weakness and pre ordered one yesterday. Why I don’t know yet it was impulse and I think the family may enjoy it. I might have to go try it out at one of the NYC locations
