Kinect arrives in Australia

Update
Kinect has arrived. After paying in full for the pre-order yesterday, I received a $50 refund from EB Games for what they said was a Microsoft launch promotion. While the terms don’t seem to be published anywhere, basically its a discount if you buy games when you get the Kinect.

Microsoft’s hottest new gadget, Kinect goes on sale in Australia today. Kinect has already become a hit in the US, selling over 1 million units. Australian’s love our xbox’s, so it’d be hard to imagine the same won’t be true locally. The launch comes with particularly good timing leading into Christmas.

Keep an eye out for a hands-on later today and review shortly after. The stand out launch games to me look like Dance Central, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved and Kinectimals, I’ll have reviews of those 3 games within the next week.Kinect
