Microsoft will launch Kinect in the US tomorrow, and to get folks pumped to the max for it, the firm will be holding a launch party in NYC’s Times Square.

The festivities take place at the Toys R Us store located on the famous square, and the first 3,000 people to line up and purchase Kinect will receive a free copy of Kinect Sports and Kinect Joy Ride, along with a one-year Xbox Live Gold subscription.

In addition to the lucky 3,000 fans, the Xbox “prize patrol” will also be handing out commemorative gear and prizes to others standing in the buy line.

Free always equals awesome.
