Rare has said Kinect does work in small lounges, despite claims you need to be at least six feet away from the screen for proper operation.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Rare senior engineer Nick Burton said such claims had been blown out of proportion, adding people with a smaller living space needn’t worry.
“The camera configures itself, basically, when you set it up. Now, obviously, if you’ve only got that much space [makes a small space between his hands] between your TV there’s just not enough space for you to physically fit in the frame of the camera so you need to stand back a little bit.
“But it’s not like, ‘Hey, look at me over here,’ and you’re in a massive living room. We live in England.”
Kinect launches in the UK on November 10.
