Remember those Kinect beta invites Microsoft was supposedly sending to a chosen few prospective participants a week ago? The emails have been proven as genuine, as at least one beta user is already shredding up his NDA and leaking information and showing off a much sleeker, Kinect-enabled dashboard.
Joystiq has some hot screen grabs of the said dashboard, which we assumed was coming with the launch of the Kinect hardware. As a whole, the dash appears to be less bulky, both in-game and out. Its colors are a lot more sensible and refined, too, much like the new, more human-like avatar that Rare has been working on.
Kinect launches on November 4 in the US. As previously reported, it'll be packed in with copies of Kinect Adventures for $150. There's also a 4GB console bundle that will retail on the same day that includes the Kinect device and a copy of Kinect Adventures for $300.
