Microsoft just announced that the Kinect is releasing in North America this Fall on November 4th, and will be released alongside 15 titles, one of which looks to be a new Sonic game. You can read up on some of these here. One of the games — Kinectimals — lets you teach a tiger how to play dead, as demonstrated during Microsoft’s E3 media briefing.

 

As of this post, no price point has been announced for the device. Strangely, Milo, the tech-demo featuring an interactive boy, was not demonstrated at the briefing either.

 

The new Xbox, on the other hand, is shipping to stores this week, and costs $299. The re-modeled system comes with 250 GBs of storage and a built in Wi-Fi adapter.
