Sesame Street TV coming to Kinect for Xbox 360 this fall
If you thought that any and all Kinect-powered Sesame Street experiences would be limited to Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, think again.
Today it was discovered that Microsoft is working to bring the brand to the Xbox 360 "in a multitude of different ways", according to Josh Atkins, Director of Game Design at Microsoft's Soho, London studios. One example is Sesame Street TV, a new interactive TV-style game under development at MS Soho.
Previously announced as an Xbox 360 exclusive, Atkins hinted that the game could be made available to a much larger audience, with a possible announcement at the Develop conference today in Brighton, England.
"It's coming out this fall, we haven't announced a specific date yet but it will be coming out on Xbox," he said. "When I get asked how it's being released I can't answer that question in great detail, other than say that any way that you can get TV, this product will be released." He later stated that Sesame Street TV is "not exclusive to retail".
According to Atkins, Microsoft is working very closely with the Sesame Street team, and is looking to produce eight "episodes" of Sesame Street TV.
"It's a beast," he said of Kinect. "It's very difficult to work with but when it does work, it's magic."
I, frankly, only have one question: will I be able to tickle Elmo?
