Wow. The news coming from Kinect gets worse all the time. First you can't be seated, then the $150 price is leaked and now the creator says the maximum players is 2. Now again with the mixed messages at the moment, MS is claiming 4 players can use it, the creator says 2.
We can track up to four players in the same way we track controllers.
Company that created Kinect technology says :
PrimeSense reps also told me that the camera can "see" any number of people on the screen -- you can fit as many people in that camera as possible, and the computer will see all of them and can even recognize them as human shapes. But it can only run calculations on two people at a time, just because the processing power required to track all of the body's locations and movements is so great.
Who's right and who's wrong? If it's 2 player only, man, this thing is a disaster seeing as it's being aimed at families playing together.
