Microsoft Open House - Xbox Kinect, Halo Reach and Fable III showcased

The IT giant demonstrated some of its the upcoming products.

Microsoft’s Open House event in Sydney started off on a high note with presentations by Microsoft Xbox director, David McLean, and developers from Bungie and Lionhead studios.

While there was mention of a host of new products from the IT giant, the focus was very much on the Xbox and its upcoming motion control system, Kinect.

Halo Reach was available for play although journalists had to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Microsoft also hosted an Open House tour where Xbox LIVE senior product manager, Andrew Jenkins, played house with other Microsoft staff to demonstrate a host of the latest products, including the new and improved Windows Mobile.

Microsoft originally planned a hands-on demonstration of Windows Phone 7, but flight issues saw the preview scaled down (pictured).
