How you can see Kinect BEFORE it goes on sale


Kinect will go on sale in November, but if you want to try it out early, let me tell you how. Starting this weekend we’re hitting the road with the Kinect Experience mobile demo tour. We’re going taking Kinect across the US to various places incuding some big fairs and festivals. If you can’t wait to try your hands (and feet) at controller free gaming, here is your chance:
