Nyko Zoom for Kinect tested at E3

We had the opportunity to quickly try Nyko's Zoom for Kinect at E3. The add-on is very simple at its heart and refocuses the Xbox 360 motion controller's cameras to a closer distance. While it hadn't been fully explained in the release, Nyko at the show believed it could properly track two players in about the same distance it would take a regular Kinect to show one. A single player on the Zoom should get over a foot closer to the screen, a definite plus for an apartment.
