The Xbox One installation manual has accidently been leaked and it pretty much doesn’t show us anything of interest; apart, perhaps, from the distance requirements for the bundled Kinect 2.0
According to this manual you are not going to need a large room for your Kinect gaming experience to work with the sensor needing to be placed at least 0.6 meters above the ground and no more than 1.9 meters while you can be as close as 1.4 meters to the device for it to work.
The current Kinect recommends between 1.8 and 2.4 meters with the realistic requirements being closer to 2.4 so this is a big change for those of you who live in apartments and don’t have the natural space of suburban America.
Apart from that all we now know is that you push the logo to turn the box on – which we knew – and that you need to plug cables into things to make it work…
