Xbox One’s enhanced Kinect bar is ten times more powerful than the current Xbox 360 model, according to Rare’s Nick Burton.

This Xbox Wire post summed up some of Microsoft’s key quotes from Comic-Con at the weekend, including some choice snippets from Burton.

We reported on the meat of Microsoft’s Comic-Con panel here, but the blog post adds that Burton said the Xbox One Kinect is ten times more powerful than the current model, and is capable of tracking a finger-tip three metres away.

The post also adds that in Rare’s Xbox One debut ‘Kinect Sports Rivals’, the device will even be able to measure how forcefully you turn your wrist when applying throttle in jet-ski events, and it will also track exact hand placement when engaging in a spot of rock-climbing.

We’re yet to see a direct spec comparison between the current Kinect and the Xbox One model, but we’re sure it’ll creep out of the internet’s pores at some point.

Right now though, what do you think?

Thanks IGN.
