Kinect was given a sneak reveal at a celebrity-packed party hosted by Cirque du Soleil. Video game fan and TV presenter Jack Osbourne and Girls Aloud’s Nadine Coyle attended.

Coyle said: “I support the Northern Ireland’s Children’s Hospice and Xbox are awarding them consoles for the kids. And I think it’s just fantastic that they can move around and they don’t have to fiddle with buttons, and it’s just a brand new piece of technology that I’m really excited to see.”
