At E3 2011 Nyko successfully convinced us that all of our Kinect floor spaces issues would be fixed thanks to the company's Zoom optical Kinect attachment originally scheduled to debut this month.
Unfortunately Kinect owners living in close quarters will have to wait a bit longer for the 40 percent increase in surface area requirements. MTV Multiplayer is reporting that the Nyko Zoom has been delayed about a month to September 13, though the $30 price tag remains unchanged.
MTV Multiplayer says Nyko blames an "overwhelming demand from consumers and retailers" as the cause for a delay. While it certainly sounds like a problem a third-party accessory maker would want to have, it may prevent some Kinect users from truly enjoying one the best titles to release on the platform, tomorrow's Xbox Live Arcade release of Fruit Ninja Kinect.
We must ask, is living room space preventing you from using your Kinect?
