Jimmy Fallon demos Xbox One on late night TV

Actor Will Forte joins Fallon on his late night program to play Forza 5 and Kinect Sports Rivals.

Last night, Microsoft demonstrated the Xbox One and various games like Forza Motorsport 5 and Kinect Sports Rivals on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC. Forza 5 is an Xbox One launch title, while Kinect Sports Rivals will be released in 2014, though a free trial version will be available at launch.

Fallon and a Microsoft representative were joined during the segment (below) by Saturday Night Live actor Will Forte, who went head-to-head with Fallon in Kinect Sports Rivals.

Last week, Sony brought the PS4 onto Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and demonstrated PlayStation Camera game The Playroom with actor Ice-T. The Xbox One launches tomorrow, November 22, in North America for $500.

Reminded me of the last Christmas when my family and I just all geeked out to Kinect Adventure, it was great. I never thought I'd game with my family and on the family's big screen for that matter haha. Sure we've played Mario Kart but upstairs in the bedroom's TV while everyone watched TV downstairs. Good times.

Kinect 2.o seems alright but even tho it's more advance than the ps4 camera... for me it's just something about playing a game without anything in your hands seems weird. I tried it too and I feel like an idiot lol but that's just my opinion.

If you're reading this, do yourself a favor and don't read any of the other comments.  They will make you dumber.

That demo was terrible and wasn't even aimed at the people that would be watching a Xbox One demo at midnight, aka adults. Whoever thought it would be a good idea to show a Kinect jet ski game is beyond me.

The PS4 demo at the same show definitely won --  it won over the crowd much more so than this.  

That entire body bending hand waving thing is totally gimmick and old.    They weren't confident enough to demo voice control and the advertised "more innovative" Kinect stuff.   One wonders if it actually works that well in real life (as opposed to in MS' labs and other controlled environment).

Wtf? Why aren't they using the Kinect to control the dashboard? I thought that was the most innovative thing they have been whoring since day one?

That is kind of interesting hey. They have no problem releasing polished demo videos but NONE in real life. The reason for this is because the Kinect SUCKS for any practical use.

One day people will figure it out and stop supporting retarded shit like this.

All though the demo for ps4 camera last week was imo better but now after a whole year of debating on these articles. I gotta give some props to Xbox one. Even though I'll only be getting a ps4 it's all about the gamers.

Jimmy Fallon just dissed the kinect. It "copied" Jimmy Fallon's face and made him look like Joey Fattone. The graphics for this game look horrible as well. It looks like a wii game but with worse control. Next gen graphics?! You can tell Jimmy Fallon and Will Forte just wanted this skit over ASAP. It could have been worse. They could have done a demo of Ryse and that would have been a hilarious skit...... Jimmy Fallon, Ice-T and the crowd were going bonkers in excitement over the PS4 demo. Audience members heads were exploding in that PS4 demo especially when when they saw the responsiveness of the PS4 Eye. Look it up. Just saying.

PS4 on Jimmy Fallon was better presented, much more hilarious and suitable for this comedic show.

I hate Jimmy Fallon, terrible comedian, i don't know why people like him so much.

Go watch Rosie O'Donell, way better.

@SiLenTWarrior29  I agree, sometimes I yell at games but talking to a game/tv/Kinect/Eye is just weird for me. Especially since it doesn't work 100% of the time. Controller is faster. I really don't want to stand and jump around playing video games either, but that's me.

Yes should have listened too.. " they were laughing at the ps4 demo, that means our console wins"..........really?

@coaltango for some reason ps4 doesn't have an exclusive or any racing game at launch

@Shadow4020 Yeah, I guess adults don't have spouses or children? However, maybe logic is just beyond you.

They did the same for the PS4 when it was on Jimmy's show they showed the Playroom demo which is also skewed rather young. At least both demos worked flawlessly without any real problems.

@dysonlu It truly does not. Watch some Xbox demo's and you will see that you basically have to yell at the Kinect numerous times to get it to react and this is in a very quiet rooms. I read that even normal conversions in the same room can mess with the Kinect if things sound similar to commands.

It is seriouly another failed attempt at marketing the Kinect. There will never be a practical use for it in gaming.

Seems as if you are unable to actually reason and research beyond a comments sections of a website.

Sony fanboy will find anything to bitch about.... It's a kinetic rivals game, not a fuckin Picasso simulation. And your right. We need a attention starved black guy kicking minions for a comedic break.... Smh

@BH14 Totally agree. The funny thing in this video is, is that they used the controller and not voice commands to move around the dashboard. Gimmicks only work in closed demo's or polished marketing videos.

@carolino see, if you had an X1, you could just say "XBox, stop" instead of clicking and using outdated controllers etc... lol

@WingChopMasta @dysonlu 

Yeah, the review on Engadget says it's borderline hit and miss.  If that's the case, then forget it -- people will not use it if it doesn't work close to 90% of the time.

@djdan200 @broly180 yes because many hood black thugs post comments on gaming websites. how about you don't be a racist pig and go to a lazer light dubstep show and eat an xpill and lose the hate DJdandouchebag.

@danbodamnit 

picasso simulation?! What are you talking about? How about raising your expectations above wii graphics but i guess that is asking too much from a $500 system?  Microsoft is too busy entertaining and doesnt care about gaming anymore. This junk and ryse are just classic microsoft exclusives. Stop making excuses for microsoft.
