Ellen not good enough to play Dance Central on ‘medium’

Ellen DeGeneres loves Kinect for Xbox 360, and now so do her viewers. 

The popular daytime talk show host busted out Kinect and Harmonix’s Dance Central, dancing along to Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me.” The crowd goes wild at her performance, but I’m not fooled — she’s playing it on “Easy.” I’d expect more from Ellen, but at least she played the game; silly Oprah just gave ’em away. (Ellen’s giving away ten of them.)

Following Kinect’s appearance on Oprah, pre-orders of this thing went through the roof. It’s likely that pre-orders will see a similar spike with the sensor’s appearance on Ellen’s show. And from what I hear, pre-order numbers for it are out of this world. Is Microsoft actually going to pull this off? 

We’ll have our full review of the Kinect hardware next week, along with reviews of as many of the day-one launch games as possible. I’m absolutely killing my body to get this to you, so do stick around.
