Microsoft Announces Kinect Experience Tour

The GamerScore Blog just posted a press release about the Kinect Experience Tour that will bring the Kinect for Xbox 360 around the country for you to try out.

This summer, you can be the first to try Kinect for Xbox 360 before it arrives on store shelves Nov. 4. Microsoft Corp. today announced that it is bringing Kinect for Xbox 360 to a city near you through the Kinect Experience mobile demo tour. Throughout the next 14 weeks, the mobile tour will be stopping in 32 cities across North America. From the California State Fair to the Mall of America, the Kinect Experience will let you be among the first to play Kinect games and control your music and HD movies and videos with just your voice or the wave of your hand — no controller required.

On top of that photos and video will be posted to a special portal located at http://www.kinect.me so you can share your Kinect Experience with family and friends both online and though social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Will you attend an event if there is one nearby to get a peek at the experience?
