With pumpkins on our doorsteps and leaves falling from the trees- we know Spring sounds so very far away. But the latest news from Microsoft this past week was so exciting we wanted to bring you the scoop!
Launching next spring, The Kinect for Xbox 360 will allow preschoolers to visually and physically interact with Sesame Street characters on screen while watching Sesame Street episodes with their newest title: Sesame Street TV. While playing in areas unique to Sesame Street, such as Elmo’s World kids can help characters finding shape and counting objects.
Also launching in Spring, 2012- Kinect Nat Geo TV. Kinect Nat Geo TV will bring kids and their families around the world through its unique blend of the Nat Geo Wild TV show episodes and Kinect for Xbox 360 technology. Like Sesame Street TV, kids not only watch the episodes, but they also engage, play, and learn as Kinect Nat TV turns living rooms into habitats and viewers into animals.
And if as if all of that wasn’t fun enough, Microsoft’s Kinect team is also expected to release, Code-named “Rush,” a new title to debut in the spring that allows players to immerse themselves in iconic Disney-Pixar films, including The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Up, Toy Story 3, and Cars 2.
