PostSubject: Report: Xbox 720 Kinect 2 Specs Leak   Thu Feb 21, 2013 3:24 am

Looks like the specs for Microsoft’s new Kinect unit have leaked online, courtesy of VGLeaks.

According to the report, the new improved Kinect will sport an increased field of view and a higher depth range in order to allow up to six users to play at once. This is facilitated by a 70-degree horizontal and 60-degree vertical field of view, which is up from 57.6 and 43.5 on the current units.

Thanks to this the new Kinect model will not need to tilt in any way. It should just see everything that’s going on in the room.

The sensor has also been beefed up, according to the report, returning a full HD resolution colour stream at 30 frames per second. That compares favourably to the current unit which returns just 15fps at lower resolutions.

The new Kinect will also be able to recognise whether players’ hands are open or closed, provide better skeleton tracking thanks to improved joint detection, and offer tailored options for standing or seated players.

It has previously reported that the new Kinect unit will ship with every next-gen Xbox console.

All of which is kinda cool. We’ll wait for official confirmation, and more importantly some quality games to play with the thing, before we get excited. Full specs below.

Good to hear that they are updating the peripherals along with the new hardware.

Still don't think the kinect will ever take over from a good old fashion controller for me, I prefer to chill out and play games not jump around like an idiot. lol.

Its this Health Nation bull that is going around.

Oh, I'd never give up my traditional controller for the Kinect, but it can be fun on rare occasions....my son really enjoys it and it's good for wearing him out!!! Laughing
