Are you a Kinect owner? Are you looking for some new games for that Kinect sensor for you or your family? If so, then here are dates and prices for three upcoming Kinect-powered Xbox 360 titles.

On September 18th, you’ll have two new choices: Kinect Sesame Street TV, and Kinect Nat Geo TV—both retailing for $29.99.

Kinect Sesame Street TV? I’ve got no problem with you. The game promises to let kids explore the world of Sesame Street, interacting with its various crazy characters via the power of motion control. But Kinect Nat Geo TV? What’s up with this “Nat Geo” stuff? Is “National Geographic” not hip enough for today’s youth? And is Kinect Nat Geo TV a game about fighting bears via your Kinect? I could maybe be into that.

Wait, hold on…

…uhh, what kind of game is this exactly?

So, I guess calling these releases “games” may be a somewhat loose interpretations of what games are. Here’s what Microsoft had to say about the two in their press release today:

With these all new 2-way TV experiences from Kinect for Xbox 360, your child can now jump inside his or her favorite television shows and engage, interact and learn like never before. “Kinect Sesame Street TV” and “Kinect Nat Geo TV” will each cost $29.99 USD/2400 MS points for eight 30-minute episodes and will be available at your local retailers and also via download when you purchase a Season’s Pass on Xbox LIVE. Individual episodes can also be purchased for $4.99 USD/400 MS points.

Hmm. Well, I do know for sure that the last title is for sure a game—or, at least, more of a game. Nike+ Kinect Training was one of Microsoft’s big pushes at E3 2012; it’s a new Xbox 360 release that will provide you will all kinds of exercise and training options, right there in the comfort of your own home. Sadly, I feel pretty confident in telling you that it will involve no virtual combat with giant furry animals.

Nike+ Kinect Training will be $49.99 when it hits on October 30th.
