In the old days we were content to play video games sitting on our rumps and we liked it. The only problem is that many gamers started outgrowing their gaming chairs, some of them spilling their flab over the sides of their armrests, which made it impossible to reach for their Cheetos and Mountain Dew. Enter motion gaming and peripherals like the Kinect.
However, one drawback to the Kinect (aside from the fact that movement is required) is that it doesn’t work well in small spaces. Enter the Nyko Zoom. Nyko’s Zoom allows you to get closer to your Kinect if you happen to live in a small apartment or have your Xbox in a small room.
The device originally had an August 13 release date, then August 23, but it looks like they are not going to make either of those dates. Amazon and Gamestop both have the Zoom’s launch now listed as September 13. A month isn’t all that bad though. I’m sure many of us won’t mind sitting it out in the meantime.
