Microsoft's surprise announcement at its E3 press conference earlier in the week was about a redesigned version of the console, which hits stores this week. The new version replaces the old one, which could not be found anywhere at Microsoft's booth.
Microsoft was giving live demos of Kinect to E3 attendees in sealed booths with transparent backdrops. This is impressive given that Kinect is constantly searching for people with its built-in camera. Demos by Sony, on the other hand, were put on a solid white background, and viewed from the side instead.
MTV Games' upcoming Dance Central title was another third-party title to be demoed at Microsoft's booth. The game uses the Kinect camera to track user movement in time to dance moves, and was featured in Microsoft's E3 press conference.
