Guy Smiley and Prairie Dawn?! I need a Kinect!
It looks like they've filmed a couple special exclusive scenes for this upcoming game thing of there's. The Guy and Prairie sketch is probably all the incentive someone needs to get this... I think that Cookie and Grover coconut toss game is exclusive too. They use the actual Puppets for this one instead of CGI... very interesting. Sort of like those Viewmaster games.
Anyone notice the Japanese Sesame Street characters in the logo? I wonder why that is...
Here's the trailer for Kinect Sesame Street TV.
Here's a review of two-way TV, along with previews of Kinect Sesame Street TV.
Here's two interactive examples on Kinect Sesame Street TV, one with The Count telling the viewer to hold still while he counts to eight and one with Cookie Monster telling the viewer to jump to let the leaves fall.
Take a look at some screenshots:
God, I wish I had a Kinect. This game is lookin' awesome!
These pictures are nice! I love it!
This looks like a great idea and all, I just hope this doesn't become the future of Sesame Street...
I hope not, but I do hope it proves to be a financial success an brings in the cash like Tickle Me Elmo did. Then, a lot more effort can be put into season 44.
this game looks quite good i mean a game with guy smiley will be awsome in my books i might get it
That's a tricky question to ask, because... well... let's face it. We're completely unclear on what the future of television, media in general actually, really is. I don't see Sesame Street's TV run ending due to a new generation video game based technology such as this. I think it supplements it rather nicely, making better use of rerun material than PBS could, but not taking too much away from the TV show. As we have more and more forced, completely fake interactivity in kids shows (basically having a character ask a question, only for the fake audience to answer it, implying the home viewer has anything to do with it), it IS refreshing to see something that actually is interactive.
That's not to say it will be X-box exclusive, or even on the way in the next few years. There always tends to be some dramatic media shift when something new happens. Sometimes things go obsolete (but usually just hardware and home entertainment products), but some things do tend to stay around, albeit slightly altered.
I can see Sesame Street being an entirely different thing all together, and I can also seeing it same as it ever was. Whatever it is, it's not going to happen for quite some time.
im most likely gonna buy this
If you can ignore the young man trying to be funny with his voice-over, this video has footage of some new stuff with Ernie and Bert:
I don't know about you, but that's classic E&B material right there.
Oh hey, eight new episodes were released this week. Biggest surprise:
How does this work exactly?
They release new interactive episodes every week? (There's Sesame episodes that we're not seeing?)
It's motion sensor technology; so when you make a "throw" motion, an object will be thrown toward the characters as needed.
And these aren't an every week thing; a disc of eight episodes was released in late 2012 and this new set of eight is on the Xbox Marketplace. They're not really new episodes; they're re-used street stories (with a library piece or two) with some new material tailored to the motion sensor technology.
I was just looking at the Muppet Wiki "Kermit on Sesame Street" page and saw that you can achieve points or something if you watch a Kermit clip from the video library. I had no idea that Kermit was in this. But when looking at the Muppet Wiki page for this I saw it mention "Elmo's World: Frogs" being included, so I guess that's what the Kermit footage is. Or is there additional Kermit content on this release (I'd be surprised if it has any classic content at all)?
I was looking at the forum part of Muppet Wiki and saw that the game includes an app where you can watch a large variety of clips, including many classic clips. I read that the app even arranges them by season (as well as "classic clips", "celebrities", and so on). And I read that it even includes old clips not at sesamestreet.org.
It'd be interesting to see a list of what clips are included, especially when arranged by season. I wonder if it has clips with any really rare characters like Leslie Mostly, Deena and Pearl, Shivers the Penguin, Aristotle, The Mudman, and others.
