Here’s Kinect’s First ‘Official” TV Ad

1 min read


All those pretty terrible ads you’ve seen on the internet for Microsoft’s controler-less motion-sensing doohickey? Those were incomplete! Unfinished advertisements!

This is the first “official” one, and as expected, features all sorts of people jumping about like sillies not using controllers. Kinectimals, Dance Central and Kinect Sports seem to be the games on show, although it’s hard to tell, considering the dearth of actual game footage. "You don’t have to know anything you don’t already know. You don’t have to do anything you don’t already do," the ad promises; which is perfect, because I always stick my bum out to drift around corners.

I’ve been one of the more vocal Kinect naysayers here, but like all thing gaming related I probably will end up getting it. Dance Central is too much fun to pass up…I just need to see if the fun is amplified by the hearty application of tequila.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
