Kinect playable in US, UK stores

Those curious about Kinect can get some body-on time with the device before its November launch. Right now in fact.

The motion controller is available for sampling in Microsoft Stores across the US: “Can’t wait to play Kinect? Try it at MicrosoftStores nationwide,” the stores’ Twitter presence informs. That’s all four of them then — in Scottsdale, Mission Viejo, San Diego and Lone Tree.

According to what representatives from Game and HMV have told Techradar, retailers in the UK are hatching similar plans (for both Kinect and PS Move) — the key to Kinect is “obviously all about demonstration,” a Game rep believes — though that’s likely to take shape around the time the devices actually launch, not before.
