Microsoft announced the Xbox 360 Kinect Console Bundle which includes the new Xbox 360 4GB console, Kinect Sensor, and “Kinect Adventures” video game will be available November 4th for $299 (US). Pre-orders now accepted at Amazon.com and other retailers.
The new game Kinect Adventures takes players on a wild river raft ride, down a log-flume obstacle course, and through similar adventures. Additional games, including Kinectimals, Kinect Sports, and Kinect JoyRide, will retail for $49 each (US).
Kinect features video and audio sensors that eliminate the need for a traditional controller. Players use body motions and voice commands to play games, watch movies, and interact with other Xbox LIVE subscribers.
“Kinect truly is a revolutionary product. We're bringing controller-free entertainment into the living room. With one purchase, families get Kinect and the most complete and affordable way to have fun.”
