PS3 Eye toy specs are so bad it's not worth mentioning.

Not an apt comparison. Technology is different. Kinect uses IR light to track people, Eyetoy is to my knowledge a pretty standard controller.

So, which one is better?

How wrong you are!

According to a new study; YouTube,, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

So how does Kinect2 actually work? (I have a good idea how it's done but I've not seen an actual description yet).


Spec is short for speculation, right?
