Kinect for Xbox 360 Brings Fun for the Whole Family to a City Near You

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

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.
