Well, it looks like their marketing worked! I thought because it was such a short blurb, that it wouldn't do any good. However...this morning a female coworker, who had ZERO interest in the Wii, came up to me and told me how Kinect was on Oprah. She said, "it actually looks pretty good". Then another female coworker walked in (my boss) and I told them the beginning price point of the xbox/kinect combo was $300 and they both perked up.

Looks like this marketing is hitting their demographic perfectly then. We'll see what happens when Ellen has it on her show next week. Oh, and there will be ads during Glee & Dancing With the Stars next week. The Glee one will be big because they are doing the Rocky Horror Picture show, which will probably draw a huge audience.

lol, yeah those housewives, etc. looked pretty pumped too.

Kinect should be on Ellen next week sometime. Ellen seems like someone who will really get into it too. I really hope she plays it for a bit.

Eh, I just saw it. It was like 2 seconds. Just enough for her to mispronounce it, show a couple of very quick clips, and tell the audience they all will have a xbox 360 & Kinect. Which is pretty cool for them.

I'm interested in kinect. But the move---I feel that no true "hardcore" gamer would ever play with it, and that's mostly who would have a ps3 anyway. I'm not hardcore and I think it looks stupid.

Good thing that I my wife has Oprah set to record on the DVR. I will have to catch that. I really think it will be much better than and more innovative than the Wii motion plus and the playstation move. I think this is what Microsoft has been lacking lately with no real push for it.

If you get a chance you might want to catch the Oprah show today. She will be getting a feel for the Kinect! Microsoft is rolling out a half billion dollar ad campaign and Oprah is the first stop. The Ellen show will be later this month. Also look for ads during Glee and Dancing with the Stars. Oh yeah, a small website known as "youtube" will have Kinect ads plastered all over it soon.

What do you all think of this?
