Rare: Xbox One's Kinect Ten Times More Powerful Than Predecessor

Rare’s Nick Burton has suggested that the Xbox One's mandatory Kinect sensor is ten times more powerful than that of its predecessor.

Burton, the New Technology Development Lead at Rare working on Kinect Sports Rivals, intimated that the Xbox One’s Kinect sensor will be able to "register a fingertip from three meters away" [via Xbox Wire].

Speaking during a panel at last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, Buton also revealed that "every subtle movement is registered in-game and impacts performance. How hard you twist your wrist while revving the throttle of a jet ski affects its acceleration and your exact hand placement can mean the difference between success and failure in rock climbing."

According to the post, "if you stand or sit in front of the new Kinect sensor, it can capture your facial structure, hair, skin color, body composition and even expression, and build a remarkably accurate virtual athlete – your Champion – in seconds."

Ken Lobb, Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, said that this increased power will make profile switching in games such as Killer Instinct virtually seamless.

It could be a million times more powerful, but that doesn't change the fact that most gamers aren't interested in waggly motion controls, and therefore aren't interested.:|
