On the Xbox 360 gaming front we have a product launching today that is essentially for people with small houses or apartments from Nyko called the Kinect Zoom. The Zoom allows you to play your Kinect games in a smaller space, about 40 percent less space. This is great for apartment dwellers or those with small living rooms as it will allow you to fully enjoy the Kinect without having to rearrange furniture or move into a bigger home! The cost is $29.99 which I think is a small price to pay for the convenience of it.
Nyko Technologies today announced the Zoom for Kinect is now available nationwide in stores and online for an MSRP of $29.99. With a series of proprietary lenses and a simple clip-on design, the Zoom lets players enjoy Microsoft Kinect games in 40% less space, and requires no additional power or batteries. Perfect for apartments, dorms and small living rooms, Zoom lets two people play Kinect in a space that would otherwise only accommodate one person, and is compatible with any Kinect game.
“Kinect gaming will continue to grow, and with Zoom, we are able to help expand that user base by providing a solution for those looking to enjoy Kinect in a smaller environment,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “The Zoom is incredibly simple to install, and most importantly, it works. Starting today, even more people can enjoy the thrills of being the controller.”
