A demo for oddball Kinect shooter The Gunstringer is up for download on Xbox Live now.

The full game, which sees you controlling a skeletal cowboy marionette as he blasts his way across the Old West, hits stores on 16th September at a budget price of 29.99.

Eurogamer's Christian Donlan went hands-on with the 'Splosion Man studio's latest earlier this year and came away with a smile on his face.

"The Gunstringer's doesn't aim to be the most taxing arcade shooter you've ever played, but it should provide a pleasant teeth-rattling ramble all the same," read his Gunstringer preview.

If that's not impetus enough to open your wallet, perhaps Microsoft's recent announcement that it's including a free download voucher for Fruit Ninja Kinect with every copy might do the job.
