Microsoft revealed more information about Project Natal today, the motion sensing Xbox 360 camera. Previously, there were some concerns about exactly how much space would be required in a room in order for the device to work properly. Microsoft says don’t worry, Natal will know you live in a crappy studio apartment in New York.
Previous reports indicated that you’d need a large space to use Natal, but apparently that is not the case. Microsoft was quick to respond that they are aware of the fact that people may have limited space, and that Natal will automatically scan a room to determine the size, and be able to detect movement within a range of up to 13 feet away. This should be more then sufficient for even the smallest of living rooms, no matter where you live.
