Xbox 360 Kinect: “Play space” may disqualify you

For those of you who have enjoyed living in your home with limited space, the time has come for you to wonder if you need to move. The reason why I say this is because the Microsoft Kinect is the next big thing in motion-sensing gaming, but requires more space than usual.

VG247 has managed to get hold of a Kinect user manual for the Xbox 360, and decided to upload them on their website. You can clearly see that in order to get the best from the new device, you need to be at least 6ft (1.8m) away from the sensor, and 8ft (2.5m) if there are two of you.

It was Daniel Feit from 1up who said, “play space may disqualify you from using Kinect.” Meaning if you were expecting to setup the Kinect in a small room, then forget it.

The manual will come in handy for those wanting the new device for the Xbox 360, such as a useful troubleshooting section. I know one thing, my wife will not be happy when I start moving the furniture around. Read the how to guide for the Kinect.

Knowing that you need to be a certain distance away from the sensor, will this be a deciding factor when you come to purchase the Microsoft Kinect?
