Macy's stores to host Kinect demos starting July 15

Examiner.com
"If the E3 presentation with the casual game focus and the Justin Bieber concert tie-in weren't big enough clues that Microsoft is trying to broaden the appeal of the Xbox 360 via the Kinect motion-sensing camera, then we've got another example for you. Macy's has announced that 13 stores across the nation will be home to Kinect demo setups that will allow people to come in and try out the new Xbox accessory starting July 15."

WOW! I don't think they have a Macy's out here.. damn.. I'd like to try that out

The hell? That's smart thinking on Microsoft's part I guess. They are really doing their research and know exactly the demographic they are aiming at with Kinect - including where they shop at. Next up, f'ing Walmart.

Good thing I got a Macys near by.

StanLee2717d ago

Microsoft really is doing all they can to get Kinect into people's homes. If they demo it with something like Dance Revolution or Your Fitness they could probably sell a lot to the casual market.

Bobbykotickrulesz2717d ago

Macy's?

lol don't they sell women's clothing? Weird place for a video game. Oh well.

AridSpider2717d ago

Lol you clearly missed the whole point of them doing this huh?

Bigpappy2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

This people normally wouldn't be caught dead in a game store. But loosing weight and jumping around with the kids in the privicy of their homes? Fuk yes! One in every room!

Bobbykotickrulesz2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

No, it didn't go right over my head, you two morons.

In fact, I knew they would do something desperate like this the moment they hired Justin fucking Bieber to be a spokesboy for Kinect.

Macy's was always a gay store, but now that Microsoft is using them to market their shitty hardware, it's suddenly a cool store and you'd consider shopping there for your mom right?
@elementX Thank you for proving my point lmfao.MACY'S RULES

They also sell men's, young men's, women's, young women's clothing, home accessories, bedding, crystal, dinnerware, and everything for the home. What's the point of your statement? You sound like a complete douche because you think Macy's is only for women. They have an excellent home/kitchen section with all the top brands of blenders, food processors, cookware, and everything! Maybe you should leave your parents' basement and actually check out a Macy's store.

@ElementX- Well said. This is a genius move by M$ marketing team.

Imperator2717d ago

Great news. This way people will see how bad Kinect really is.

Major Jack Off and his many accounts.

killyourfm2717d ago

Macy's? They ARE a clothing store right? Ahhhh, I get it ;-)

Blaze9292717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

kudos to Kinect's marketing team. geniuses

Neco5122717d ago

That's pretty cool, who cares if it's a clothing store, I'll go play me some Kinect

Omega42717d ago

Can't believe MS is starting so early, im sure it would be wiser to save their marketing budget for oct/nov rather than July. I wonder if they are even gonna bother advertising Halo: Reach.

AridSpider2717d ago

That's a dumb though - it's halo....come on now. Ofc they will market that out the ass

IdleLeeSiuLung2717d ago

This probably doesn't cost MS anything, and it is a draw to Macy's. Who knows, maybe Macy's will start selling Xbox 360s if they aren't already.

siyrobbo2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

i can see a sweet ass live action HALO REACH short hitting soon before launch, they did it with both halo 3 and ODST

*EDIT* seems i was right
