New Kinect Gets By With a Little Less Space
Perhaps the biggest issue with Kinect v1 is the space that you needed to use it properly – 6-8 ft. for single-player to be exact. That is simply too big for many parts of the world. How much space does the Kinect 2 need? The next-gen Kinect allows you get a little closer 4 ft. 7 in for single-player and 6 ft. for two-player – while it would be nice to make that a little shorter, it should be enough to allow most people to go controller free.
