Players with small living rooms hoping to play on Project Natal might not need to re-arrange their furniture after all – Microsoft has dismissed claims that four metres of clear space is required.
A spokesperson told Kotaku: The comments recently made about the play space for Project Natal were misinterpreted. The Natal sensor reads the configuration of your room and adjusts play space, as appropriate.
We know that living rooms come in all shapes and sizes, and have conducted numerous play tests to ensure everyone will be able to jump off the couch and into the fun when Project Natal launches globally this year.”
The dismissed reports claimed a team of Natal reps said extra space needed would be a little more than four metres wide, at least four metres away from the TV and 2.7 metres high”.
