This little piece of marketing says so. Microsoft showed off Kinect and a few games at a special event last night (which will air on MTV this Tuesday) but they were mum on details. We should have further confirmation later today as Microsoft’s Press Conference is mere hours away. Hopefully we’ll get some more details such as the capabilities of the hardware and some price points.
An ad pulled from Microsoft’s Ad Servers shows a new, most likely slimmer Xbox 360.This ad also confirms that Project Natal’s final name is Kinect, which has been floating around since last week when a trademark filing popped up.
This is amazing, I really hope it’s for a new MK game. It’s a dark, realistic turn for the series, whether it’s for a game or movie I’m interested.
Gear Live is reporting that Hulu will be announced for Xbox Live at this year’s E3. Their source (who has never been wrong) says that it’ll be integrated similar to Netflix and there will be some sort of subscription although those details are still unknown. 1up is also backing this claim stating that a Hulu application for the Xbox 360 does exist, but that it’s currently tied up in rights issues. Hopefully we’ll know more when Microsoft’s Media Briefing kicks off on June 14th at 10:00 AM PT.
