Remember the Nyko Zoom Kinect Lens we wrote about last month; the Kinect add-on accessory that allowed users to enjoy the Kinect in a smaller than usual room? Well, it looks like Microsoft isn’t too pleased about the Zoom despite the device receiving a positive response from the critics. When asked by Computer and Video Games about its approval or endorsement of the device, a Microsoft spokesperson had this to say:
“Kinect has been tested for performance, accuracy and environmental conditions thoroughly. Any modification can impact the overall performance of Kinect.”
While the company hasn’t approved the Zoom or given it its blessing, it isn’t doing anything to stop sales of it either. Maybe Microsoft is planning some sort of Zoom lens of their own. The Nyko Zoom Kinect Lens is up for pre-order now and will set you back $53 (£32.95).
