Remember last week, when Oprah gave away free Xbox 360’s with Kinect, causing a microcosm of mass hysteria? Because shilling your product on just one incredibly popular daytime television talk show isn’t enough, Microsoft have engaged in another bit of ingenious product placement that’s bound to stir up more Kinect interest. Or kill it. Whatever.
This time, Kinect’s been showcased on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Naturally, they showcased the one launch title that I think has the ability to â€œsellâ€ Kinect; Harmonix’sÂ Dance Central. Quite a brilliant fit really, as the funny vegan blonde-haired rugmuncher has been known to bust out a move or two.
She too gave away an Xbox 360 and Kinect to every audience member, but you’re saved that particular insanity in the video after the jump.
Whether you as a “core” gamer like it or not, this thing is going to sell by the boatload.
