Microsoft holds massive Kinect party in NYC

Tomorrow Microsoft will begin selling its highly anticipated new add-on for the Xbox 360: Kinect. The launch represents Microsoft's move into the casual gaming market and unlike Nintendo's Wii or Sony's Move, it requires no controller to play. As Microsoft tags, "You are the controller".

To help create awareness and show off Kinect's ability, Microsoft has hosted a massive party in NYC to show off the new system. Major Nelson has been posting up pictures from the event and it clearly shows hundreds if not thousands of people attending the party.  

Neowin previously reported of a Microsoft employee's prediction that Kinect sales will "blow away" the iPad. Kinect for the Xbox 360 is set to hit stores shelves on November 4 in North America and November 10 in Europe. The device carries a $149.99/£149.99 price tag and launch with 17 game titles.
