Asia Shipping Out November 15-19: Kinect
Microsoft officially launches motion-sensing add-on in Singapore; new Need for Speed, Harry Potter released.
The latest salvo in the motion-sensing controller wars--the Xbox 360's Kinect--was released in the US almost two weeks ago, and now it's Asia's turn. Microsoft is marking the launch with a five-day-long event in Singapore's Plaza Singapura shopping centre, with appearances from Singaporean celebs such as Edmund Chen and Jaymee Ong. While the Kinect won't officially go on sale until November 18, consumers with a DBS/POSB credit or debit card will be able to buy it from November 17 as part of a special prerelease offer. Full details about the launch event can be found here.
But it's not all about motion sensing this week, with highly anticipated AAA titles also getting their Asian debut. Leading the pack is Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which follows the continuing adventures of Ezio and his fight against the powerful and mysterious Templars. The game also now includes multiplayer for the first time in the franchise's history. For those with racing on their minds, EA's latest entry in the classic Need for Speed franchise--Hot Pursuit--rushes onto store shelves and harks back to the series' traditional focus on illegal racers versus dogged police.
