The lights are on
A few years ago Microsoft and Burger King teamed up for a trio of low-cost 360 and original Xbox games like Sneak King and Pocket Bike Racing, and the pair are working together again for Kinect.
The promotion will take place during the Kinect launch, but it's unknown at this time if there will be more video games featuring The King, or if it's something more traditional. Who knows, maybe we'll even see Kinect at Burger Kings. At a minimum we hope that Kinect's sensors can read if we have a Whopper in our hand while we're using it.
Email the author Matthew Kato, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
that's a pretty cool way to market the Kinect to those who don't know what it is yet.
hmm..interesting...a peripheral that makes you more active combined with a fast food joint--which is equal to the devil for active people--its like a hypocritical, oxymoronic statement for M$ to advertize with the King. Wii goes Heart Association...Kinect goes BK...
Sounds great. A Kinect King game sounds like it could actually be fun.
The BK Kings were cool little games. They were definitely worth the 3 bucks a piece
Oh man... I just had a flash of something horrible. Kinect featuring product recognition... plus achievements.
"Play King-nect while eating a Whopper! - 10G"
Hey, if I get one with my meal, then cool.
"At a minimum we hope that Kinect's sensors can read if we have a Whopper in our hand while we're using it."
I'm sure it'll be a requirement. It the Kinect doesn't detect one in hand at start up, the game won't work.
Burger King has the nastiest of all fast food but the best mascot.
no burger king no!!!!! just stick with making food
does this mean we get to go sneakeh sneakeh again??
nothin like watching are burger man winning another race aye gamers.
nothing says "our new $150 peripheral is a serious peace of technology" like featuring a man dressed in a burger joint mascot costume riding a scooter.
Yay! Hopefully we'll see DLC... I liked the games, but not enough to keep the discs around forever.
Each game comes with coupons for free BK double cheeseburgers. I was telling my sister about the Kinect and she was like, "So how much is it going to be?" "Oh well it isn't sertain but around 150 probably."
Now she isn't interested at all, I think they should drastically lower that price.
honestly this is the only game i would play from kinect. The other games are that bad
