"We're proud to be partnering with ESPN to expand our ever-growing library of entertainment on Xbox LIVE," said Marc Whitten, corporate vice president of Kinect, Xbox LIVE and LIVE Services at Microsoft. "Our goal is to not only bring premium live sports content to tens of millions of people in the Xbox LIVE community, but also integrate rich social and interactive features into the experience so they can enjoy their entertainment with the people they care about, on the same couch or across the country. And for the first time, you will be able to control this entertainment using just a wave of your hand or sound of your voice with Kinect for Xbox 360, which launches on November 4th."
