Kinect Table Tennis Is Making Kinect Look Pretty Good Right Now

1 min read


I must admit that since spending an oddly large amount of time playing the heck out of the Playstation Move Table Tennis mode in Sports Champions, I am pretty interested in just about anything that even remotely reminds me of it.

Concerns have arisen due to reports that the Microsoft Kinect technology is not exactly up to scratch when it comes to accuracy and latency, but this video of the Table Tennis mode in Kinect Sports seems to want to change my mind.

The video shows that not only can the player have a pretty great Table Tennis experience, complete with the ability to add spin, move forwards and backwards etc. but the small amount of latency doesn’t seem to be a problem at all. Not too bad considering that two players seem to be having fun without the need for any controller.

Is Kinect going to surprise us by the time it launches? We will have to wait and see. For now, head through the jump and watch the video below.
