Microsoft Kinect To Tour UK

Microsoft is giving its customers a chance to experience its Kinect motion-sensing Xbox 360 peripheral before buying it, tech news site Techradar has reported.

Microsoft is conducting demo sessions across the UK until December.

The live demos will take place at five different locations around the country: Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, London Zoo, The Thames Festival in London and the Clothes Show Live exhibition at the Birmingham NEC.

At each of the sessions, Microsoft says users will be able to play the games Dance Central, Kinect Adventures, Joyride and Kinectimals.

Potential customers can book their place at the demos through the social networking platform Facebook, or simply turn up on the day at the correct venue.

Microsoft is offering a permanent summer testing centre at London’s Covent Garden, named Kinect Galleries.

Kinect Galleries is set to open from tomorrow.
