First 3000 to Buy Kinect in Times Square Get Free Stuff

Some of you might know that the Microsoft Kinect finally goes on sale tomorrow.  Some of you might also be super crazy excited for it, and stand in countless lines across the nation tonight to snatch the fancied-up webcam at midnight.  The select few of you that have an incurable stiffy for it might even attend the official midnight launch party at Toys R Us in Times Square, New York City.

Those of you falling into the last category should be doubly stiffer with the news that the first 3,000 folks who purchase a Kinect at said launch party will also be given copies of Kinect Sports and Kinect Joy Ride, along with a one-year XBOX Live Gold subscription.  In addition, there’s also going to be something called the “XBOX Prize Patrol” on hand to give trinkets and cheap, “made in China” baubles to those who’ve shown up for the festivities.

As someone who doesn’t even own an XBOX 360 and isn’t even sure there’ll be 3,000 in line, I can’t really comment on this, not with anything nice anyway.  Good luck to those in line though; hope you guys get everything you want out of the Dance Central Machine Kinect.
