Microsoft: Kinect has improved since launch

Microsoft cites E3 press conference as evidence of increased accuracy

Microsoft has confirmed that its Kinect peripheral has been improved since launch.

In a conversation with Eurogamer, Xbox senior product manager David Dennis highlighted the E3 press conference as evidence of its increased functionality.

"You saw...with Ubisoft's gunsmith demo [for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier] he was using his hand to fire in the firing range mode. I think that's the kind of thing we're going to continue to iterate on."

Dennis also cited Kudo Tsunoda's Kinect Fun Labs demo as an example of both improved accuracy and finger-tracking.

"These [updates] are very deliberate and planned and programmed," he added. "There are already people working on things for next year and the year after inside our secret bunkers, and we'll continue to bring amazing stuff that consumers love."
