MS: No Natal space limitations

Earlier comments "misinterpreted"; Movement tracking camera can work in any sized room

Microsoft has issued a clarification explaining that Natal is not dependant on the size of gamers' rooms to work properly - following reports that at least 13 feet of clear space was required.

"The comments recently about the play space for Project Natal were misinterpreted," the software giant explained in a statement. "It is true that the Project Natal sensor reads the configuration of your room and adjusts play space, as appropriate."

"We know that living rooms come in all shapes and sizes, and have conducted numerous play tests to ensure everyone will be able to jump off the couch and into the fun when Project Natal launches globally this holiday."

Earlier this week, Microsoft exec. Hsiao-Wuen Hon let slip that the company is already at work on a sequel to Project Natal.
