Hi all, I’m reporting direct from geektown, USA, in San Francisco – home to Apple, Microsoft and Twitter – where it just got a level geekier with the Xbox Spring Showcase 2012. Open to media only, the event is a two-day gamefest where press from all over the world learn what the Xbox holds for gamers in 2012.
While what we’ve seen are held under the tightest security (until 10pm, Singapore time, on Monday March 5), we can tell you it has given us goosebumps.
There will be some familar faces returning but it is the development of Kinect that has impressed us on how immersive game play will be going forward. Speaking to TODAY, global director of product marketing, Xbox Steve Beiner said: “Kinect’s here to stay. Kinect’s integral to (Xbox) and when you talk about voice and gesture maneuvering going down the road, that innovation is definitely something we want to continue to leverage.”
As much as we’re bursting to share what we’ve learnt, we can only let the floodgates open on 10pm, March 5. So do check back on this blog for Xbox games you will want to try.
