Burger King Generous On Food, Xbox Japan Cheap On Kinects

For those who bought Whopper meals, Burger King and Microsoft gave away a Kinect every 15 minutes in America until the motion sensor launched late last month. That’s over 1500 Kinects! In Japan, 20 Kinects will be given out.

Twenty.

The catch here is that customers must order a BK Party Set that includes a Holiday Chicken Salad, BK Tenders, BK Cheese Bits, onion rings (mmm, onion rings) and a NY Pizza Burger. The price of all this food? ¥2980 or about $36. That’s right, $36 to enter a draw for one of 20 Kinects.

The BK Party Set must be ordered and is intended for holiday and end-of-year gatherings – not daily consumption! And winning a Kinect is likely to be an afterthought for most.

Contest ends on December 19. Heartburn lasts much longer.
