It's "not true at all" that Kinect uses up an entire core of the CPU he says. Usage is so low it doesn't impact game performance, tech is "really cool".
"That's not true at all. I don't really know how much I can talk about it but it's less than 1%, or something like that," said Blais speaking with Xbox World 360 magazine, referring to how much power from the hardware does Kinect slurp - it's rumoured to take a core.
It's so low "we could apply Kinect to an action game and still put the same kind of action on screen", argued the Ubisoft expert. "I think that technology's really cool when it's faster than a controller, or you do something that you can't do with a controller. These are the rules of Kinect design," he said.
"Think about a hardcore game like Rainbow Six where you're doing hand signs and stuff like that. It would be cool; it would be more immersive. We'll have to see if hardcore gamers will be ready for that." Kinect was to have an onboard chip but it got dropped.
