Microsoft’s new initiative with Kinect to offer it as interactive tv entertainment received a glowing reception earlier this year from families across the country, and was rated 9/10 in our review. Microsoft is excited to announce that they will launch season two of its innovative 2-way TV experiences, “Kinect Sesame Street TV” and “Kinect Nat Geo TV” on 7th January 2013.
“As an entry into the 2-way TV experience, both Kinect Sesame Street and Kinect Geo TV are two great titles that will undoubtedly bring hours of entertainment to your kids where they will learn something new and additionally be occupied for months on end with downloadable content in the Season Passes. Using gestures, motion control and the camera to place you directly into some of the scenes this is a genius way of getting kids ‘hooked’ into education.”
Eight additional episodes for each title means even more interactive content and opportunities for kids and their families to jump inside their favourite television shows. This gives everyone more opportunities to engage, interact and learn in ways only available through Kinect for Xbox 360. “Kinect Nat Geo TV” season two will be hosted by reptile expert and host of Nat Geo WILD’s “Dangerous Encounters,” Brady Barr.
Season two of “Kinect Sesame Street TV” and “Kinect Nat Geo TV” will each cost 2400 MS points for the eight 30-minute episodes and will be available via download when you purchase a Season’s Pass on Xbox LIVE.
Individual episodes can also be purchased for 400 MS points.
