Kinect’s Specs for the Next Xbox?
Rumors have it that the specs for the new Kinect have been leaked, giving us a slight peek at what's to come for the full-body motion peripheral in the next-gen Xbox system.
According to VGLeaks, the next-generation Kinect's specs outstrips the current iteration's in just about every way. It will be included with the next Xbox and features a larger field of view (70 degrees horizontal by 60 degrees vertical), with an even better resolution (1920 x 1080).
A lower latency at 60ms also means that the next Kinect will be faster than its predecessor. The unit will also have no tilt function, since it should be able to capture everything within its larger, wider field of view. This also means that you won't need to move furniture around and gaming with players of varying heights will be easier, especially if they're all playing at once.
The new Kinect will also feature active infrared, which will be stable no matter the level of brightness in the play area. A new skeleton tracking system will have the ability to track whether or not your hand is open, if all players are seated or standing, and it can detect up to six active players.
