Live in Japan? All you need is three feet for your Kinect, or so Microsoft says.

Perhaps Microsoft doesn’t read Japanese and doesn’t know how to translate six feet in Japanese? It’s said you need at least six feet for your Kinect to use it properly but Microsoft is handing out three feet tapes to measure before you buy? What gives? I own a Kinect and I have at least six feet between me and my television, any closer and the Kinect has a few problems with my actions.

Microsoft did originally say you needed thirteen feet but that was reduced, so which is it? Thirteen, six or three? I guess we will figure it out with all the updates they put out over the holidays for us Kinect users. Let us know of any problems or triumphs you have with your Kinect over the next few months.


  1. 3 feet eh? Sounds good to me. I didn’t hear about the 13 feet. Idk if I’ve got enough room (6 feet) in my living room. Not to be racist(?) or anything but, wouldn’t Japanese people possibly only have 3 feet space? I’ve seen their foldy up beds :p.
