The lights are on
Oprah's audience is known for being insane -- especially when it comes to the free giveaways the talk show icon is known for. Honestly, we think they smoke freebase Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus hand lotion. Anyway, today the Big O featured Microsoft's Kinect motion control peripheral on her show. At the end, she gave away a free Kinect -- and Xbox 360 -- to each audience member. The results were predictable. Watch the madness.
Note: This is from Youtube and the audio is pretty low, but what can we say, we don't exactly DVR Oprah, sorry.

A bunch of old broads going nuts for a 360 with Kinect? I call shenanigans.
I bet they r not gettin just yet...microsoft will send when it comes out.
I bet 90% of the people in that audience didn't even know what Kinect was until they saw it on oprahs show =\
I'm jealous if you can't tell.
Why are women excited about a video game?
A whole bunch of old women don't see like the likely hardcore gamers to me.
Mmmm, I smell ebay :)
Wish i had that kinda money.....
hahaha "drug abuse" GI thanks for making my work hours fun :)
LOL! there were as crazy as tom cruise!
Those middle aged women are the only people that will ever get that excited for kinect ever. lol
I know this is just a little audience, but i can already tell kinect is going to be a HUGE success in the casual audience, yeah for the casual players the ones who havent got in the videogames or are afraid to get in them (i know some people), IMO kinect isnt for hardcore players, is more of a product to the people who havent played videogames, you might call this a gimmick but in the end MS will actually make huge profit and i bet some of those people will eventually evolve into a gamer, i can safely say this because this happened with me, i will say this again "This isn´t for us, other people exist too, companies just cant center all of their attention into you"
Figures Microsoft would use this to make the Oprah cult buy Kinect
Guess what everyone..........You get a kinect.
And you get a kinect, and you get a kinect.
(Hard to believe that the ladies there were that excited about it, then again it could be for the kids or when other family memebers comes over.)
Well thats awesome..... too bad it wasnt given to people who might get some real use out of them.
Now something needs to catch on fire.
