Sesame Street edutainment returns with Kinect Sesame Street TV for Xbox 360

Microsoft Studios and Soho Productions are bringing Sesame Street right into your own home with the Xbox 360 and Kinect.

Similar to the recently announced Kinect Nat Geo TV, Kinect Sesame Street TV looks to bump up the edutainment genre to a whole new level thanks to the Kinect functionality.

Kinect Sesame Street TV is scheduled to be released in September 2012.

Read on for the press release.

“Kinect Sesame Street TV” invites children into a two-way TV experience where they not only watch their favorite Sesame Street episodes, but interact with beloved characters including Big Bird, Grover, Oscar and more. The magic of Kinect for Xbox 360 transforms passive viewing to active participation, encouraging children to use their gestures, voices and bodies to interact with educational content on the screen.

Children will help Sesame Street characters with tasks, play in their world and learn together. Kids will delight in counting with Grover, learning letters with Cookie Monster and exploring Elmo’s World. With new content created exclusively for Kinect and access to thousands of classic clips from the Sesame Street archive, learning has never been so much fun.

“Kinect Sesame Street TV” is just one of the new two way TV experiences available for Kinect for Xbox 360 that provide children with entirely new ways to learn through play.
