I heard emails from Microsoft regarding a kinect beta were sent out last week. Is this a legit thing?
It should be, yes. Xbox Live's Major Nelson posted a bit more information about the beta program on his site here. In summary, as long as they're coming from the Microsoft Connect site and the sign ups take place on Microsoft Connect's site, the Kinect beta invites should be real.
It certainly wouldn't surprise me if a few questionable people tried taking advantage of the Kinect beta to steal personal information, though, so I'd always be cautious about this sort of thing if you actually get an e-mail.
