Well, you’re getting a taste of The Redhead on video a BIT earlier than I’d planned. I had video blogging slated to begin on September 1, but an event last week kicked my plans into high gear. I was invited to attend the “sneak peek” event for the soon-to-be-released Xbox Kinect system here in Denver. I’m not going to say anything that’s not already in the video, but I’ll supplement it with this: video games and computers were a staple in my house growing up. From Atari to Coleco Vision to the Commodore 64, we were plugged in and competing. My brother mastered Pitfall and I was an avid Frogger fan. My sister latched on the The Smurfs. The holy grail, however, was the Atari.
Games were $30 (THIRTY DOLLARS) and my mother stood in line at Sears for more than one of them. Last Thursday night’s event convinced me of one thing…okay, TWO things:
1) I still love video games.
2) The Wii is dead.
I’ve condensed it into 6 minutes and hope you enjoy.
***Per FCC regulations, I have to disclose that Xbox has not compensated me for the review and information contained in this post. However, I did receive a Flip MinoHD as a gift for attending the event. Thanks to Edelman PR and Xbox for the kind gift! You’ll be powering my video blogging efforts from here on out.
