Nyko's Kinect Zoom delayed to September

Small-room-Kinect play will have to wait three weeks longer, say retailers

Does Nyko's space-saving Kinect Zoom peripheral really work? I doesn't look like you'll be finding out this month, as originally planned.


The device, which claims to reduce the amount of space needed to play Kinect, was originally announced for an August 23 release but, as Joystiq points out, that date has been changed on retailer sites such as Amazon and GameStop to September 13.

The Nyko Zoom clip-on lense for Kinect apparently cuts Kinect's space operating requirements by 40% - to a little over three feet, which is far more manageable - and apparently impressed a number of outlets at this year's E3 show.

But Microsoft warned against using it when it said: "Kinect has been tested for performance, accuracy and environmental conditions thoroughly. Any modification can impact the overall performance of Kinect."

Nyko is yet to officially confirm a delay.
