First ‘official’ US ad for Kinect appears online

Thursday, 21st October 2010 07:22 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Microsoft’s released overnight the first ‘official’ US TV ad for Kinect. Watch it below.

The ads feature new and old footage from previously released commercials, which Microsoft said at the time was “unfinished.”

Kinectimals, Dance Central and Kinect Sports are the main games on show in the video.

Watch the minute-long clip below.

Kinect launches on November 4 in the US and November 10 in the UK.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    LOL, just look at the size of the living rooms they’re demoing this stuff in. :D

    For what it is, it’s not a bad advert actually. They’ve made the sensible move of not showing any Kinect games for a start.

    Okay, where are the games you play slouching back in the armchair with a mug of tea and a big packet of biscuits next to you? :-D

    Don’t be silly Blerk, that would have to mean Kinect works sitting down :).

    It’s worse than that, it looks like you need a nightclub to play one of the games. A GODDAMN NIGHTCLUB. HOW AM I GOING TO AFFORD THAT?

    Lmao!!!! Omg! A freaking NIGHTCLUB!!!! Are you serious!!!!! This is the best commercial ever!lmfao!

    No gameplay and the gameplay that was in there was clearly injected!lmao. Yeah, I’m not falling for this one. And by the way those living rooms were HUMONGOUS so were the bedrooms. Lmfao! This is such a epic fail.
