Now, ahead of Kinect's launch in Australia, consumer electronics manufacturer LG has announced a promotion that pairs new LG TV owners with a free Kinect bundle. Customers who purchase one of the participating LG TVs listed on the promotion site between 1 November and 31 December 2010 will be able to claim a Kinect Bundle. According to LG, the bundle will contain a new Xbox 360 4GB console, a Kinect sensor, a wireless controller, composite AV cables, Kinect Adventures, Forza Motorsport 3, Fable II and a one-month Xbox Live Gold subscription.
The offer is limited to the first 10,000 validated claims received by LG or until the promotion ends on 31 December. After making the purchase, customers will need to register on the promotional site and then mail a copy of their purchase receipt, serial number of the LG product and claim form within 14 days of making the purchase. They must then agree to pay AU$39 for postage and handling of the bundle and allow approximately 10 weeks for it to be delivered. LG also specified that the promotion includes online purchases, excluding third-party online resellers such as eBay.
Those not interested in forking out for a new television to add the Kinect kit to their Xbox 360 will have to pay AU$199 to purchase it as a stand-alone.
