Kinect Is Going On A Road Trip

Microsoft is taking its Kinect controller for the Xbox 360 on a summer vacation, hitting up dozens of locations in the United States and offering the public a chance to play with the device before it launches this November.

The "Kinect Experience Mobile Demo Tour" will give curious Xbox 360 owners a chance to play Kinect's wares over the course of 14 weeks. Games on hand include Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, Kinect Joy Ride, Kinect Adventures and Dance Central.

If you happen to be going to any of the following malls, festivals, fairs and theme parks this summer, might want to give Kinect a wave before dropping however much this thing is going to cost.
