Sesame Street looks like it’s going to be coming to Xbox 360 in a big way as a Kinect-based collaboration between the kids educational puppet show and Microsoft has gone ahead.
Kinect Sesame Street TV is a interactive TV-style game being developed by Microsofts Soho studio in London – according to CVG all they have previously done is the Sky Player app on 360.
Although designed as a 360 exclusive – mostly due to the Kinect – it seems that the design director hinted at the product reaching a far wider audience when he was speaking at the Develop conference in Brighton.
“It’s coming out this fall, we haven’t announced a specific date yet but it will be coming out on Xbox and in a multitude of different ways,” said Josh Atkins. “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 added that Kinect Sesame Street TV is “not exclusive to retail”
Eight “episodes” will be produced for the interactive TV series, something that will hopefully entice an even younger audience to the Xbox.
