Kinect Headed To North America Nov. 4th, New Xbox Shipping Today



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.
