The Adventures of an Xbox Ambassador – part six
Yesterday we had the most amazing experience of our lives. Yes more amazing than this trip has already been. How is that possible? Well, we went to the launch of Xbox’s new gaming system which up ’till now has only been known as Project Natal. Last night we learned that it is called Kinect. I have loads of photos of us testing it out which I’ll post once we’re home. It is without a doubt the most awesome gaming system EVER!
It allows you to game without any hand held controls. Instead you use your body to control the game and it is so much fun! N3S fell in love with a game called Kinectimals which allows you to interact with baby animals, training them, petting them, playing with them, and it is all a cleverly disguised form of exercise. (Shhh don’t tell the kids that last bit). We also had a go at bowling, track and field sports, kick boxing, dancing and car racing. I suck at car racing by the way…. Eventually we had to wrench ourselves away from testing out Kinect to go to a special performance of Cirque Du Soleil. We went through on VIP passes and I’m certain I could get used to this A List lifestyle very easily.
Once inside the Cirque venue we had an opportunity to try Kinect out again before moving into the auditorium for the performance. It was a special performance for and all about the Kinect experience and was almost as good as actually using Kinect. Almost but not quite as no performance can quite match up to the enjoyment of actually being able to indulge in some Kinect gaming time. I’m hooked. So are Chopper and N3S and seemingly everyone else who was there last night. You can join the other fans by following this link.
So that’s it, the holiday is over and we’re heading home from LA today *sob*. What a whirlwind of a trip its been. We’ve met fabulous people, been treated fabulously and had a fabulous time. Did I mention how fabulous its all been? Having said all that I am looking forward to getting home to see our cats. Does that make me a saddo?
We’ve got about 18 hours travel ahead of us today and I’m straight back to work on Thursday *groan* but I’ll post the photos up asap…probably Saturday. Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my posts while I’ve been away. It’s been nice to have you with us even if only on a virtual level.
