What can the other 90% do?

Rare's Kinect Sports is the race leader on Kinect, but according to the company's incubation software director Nick Burton, it used less than 15% of Kinect's capabilities.

Speaking at London's Institute for Contemporary Arts, Burton spoke of the studio's next unannounced Kinect project, revealing it'll make far more use of the sensor's abilities and feature enhanced online connectivity too. While the talk contained no hints as to what this mysterious title could be, we expect to hear much more at E3.

What do you think the other 85-90% of Kinect's power is capable of creating, if Kinect Sports was only made with 10-15%? Let us know in the comments below.

Wow 10% and such a great game with excellent control physics! I hope we see some more games created by Rare and next time put a bit more effort into your games maybe 25-30% more! Lol
