Microsoft Reduces Xbox One Kinect Minimum Distance Requirement To 1.4 Meters

Xbox One Kinect Setup

We are just a month away from Xbox One launch. We are yet to get all the details about it as Microsoft is revealing them every week as we move towards the launch date. A leaked user manual of Xbox One Kinect has revealed the minimum distance requirement to use the sensor. The new minimum distance requirement is just 1.4 meters (over 4.5-feet) which is significantly lower than the previous version of Kinect. So, people who have less space in their home should be happy to hear this!

Console/Sensor dimensions:

Console (LxWxH):

13.1″ x 10.8″ x 3.1″

33.3cm x 27.4cm x 7.9cm

Kinect 2 (LxWxH):

9.8″ x 2.6″ x 2.63″

24.9cm x 6.6cm x 6.7cm
