Kinect: "Making Space"
Posted: Wednesday October 6th, 2010 by

I saw a news item today with scans from the Kinect manual. In the manual an image shows that you need to have six feet of space between you and the Kinect for games to work as intended. If you plan on having more than one person play, you'll need at least 8 feet. [more info]

Now, I'm not chomping my nails in anticipation of the peripheral's release. If I'm going to be completely honest with you, I don't really care. I have a Wii and it sits sad and lonely in my basement unused but always ready to be played. It's down there with our exercise equipment and a copy of Wii Fit. My point is that where the itea of motion controlled gaming is a fun one, it just doesn't fit with my current gaming style which is not defined by laziness but rather by proximity to my desk.

Granted my 360 is right beside my desk so the Kinect would be as well. And I've got plenty of room to meet and even exceed the 6 foot suggested space. So I guess I don't have an excuse. I'm just really not that interested. I like holding a controller and kicking back in my chair dammit.

The North American launch date for the Kinect is currently set for Novermber 4th.
