E3 2010: You WILL Be Able to Sit with Kinect
There has been some confusion about whether or not you can sit while using Kinect, Microsofts upcoming motion controller. Weve seen many, many demos of the device in action here at E3 and used it ourselves, but weve yet to see it used by a sitting person. Early in the week IGN was told by Microsoft that you can play some Kinect games sitting down, but then weve heard the opposite from some developers. We posted an article expressing our concerns about not being able to relax while using Kinect.
In response to that article, Microsoft representatives reached out to IGN to clarify, saying we definitely will be able to sit while using Kinect. Representatives said they want to provide a comfortable, enjoyable experience for users and understand that people dont want to watch a movie standing up.
Thats good to hear, but since weve only been able to use Kinect standing up so far it looks like Microsoft is still working on making it usable in the sitting position.
