A Question for Microsoft Illumiroom: What If I Don’t Have a Coffee Table?

VG Republic Writes: The Microsoft Illumiroom was shown off for the first time at CES 2013 just a couple of months ago, but more information about the upcoming ‘room accentor’ is creeping up before the May 21st reveal of the next Xbox. While this isn’t all that surprising as Microsoft didn’t announce what system the Illumiroom would be released for, the more surprising piece is that it was discovered that the upcoming attachment is intended for the Xbox 720 instead of the already released Xbox 360. For information to be leaked about the uses for the new unit, by Microsoft, before the event later in May was a little odd, but past all of that is the information about how the unit will function and it’s intended uses for consumers. As reported by Computer and Video Games, the Illumiroom adds on to the experience by accenting your room with virtual surroundings or extends the field of view for a given title. It did seem as though the attachment was slightly discriminatory toward a group of people that don’t enjoy a piece of accent furniture as it is being marketed as a ‘Coffee Table Accessory’… but what if I don’t have a coffee table Microsoft?

Hang it on the ceiling. Lol play my games in a tiny ass bedroom so I can't put it in front of my TV.

as a playstation fan , i gotta say this illumiroom thing looks pretty cool , imagine taking a jump of a cliff in one of those fps games with illumifoom :D ! BTW this would look better if they stuck a tv in the middle of an empty wall !

It would look better against an empty wall, but then people would say, "What if I have things on my wall around the TV?". This way you can see how it still works without a blank wall, plus to show that cool cartoony outline effect on the book shelves. That was cool.

Sounds cool and all, but yeah, I don't have a coffee table. Infact, of all my mates who own consoles, none have a coffee table in front of their tv.

Stack a few milk crates. Imagination goes a long ways. If I didn't have a coffee table that's what I will do. If you seek, you will find.

LOL..I bought a coffee table version of that same item for my waiting room at work for 18 bucks. It looks nice, but is incredibly light.Like its made out of styrofoam light.Wouldnt dare try to rest my feet on it!

Just like myself when I bought the GT steering wheel for gran turismo, I used my human brain and made something to use it with, there lots of ideas to put the box on lol.

Ha, thats funny cos when I saw it the first thing I thought was that looks pretty cool, but I dont have a coffee table.

BitbyDeath1691d ago

Maybe MS should offer a coffee table with every illumiroom sold. *snicker*

ArchangelMike1691d ago

guess how I'ma dealin' wit it... thats right by not getting one. On a more serious note though, my lounge is used by the whole family at various times. There are very few times I can use the lounge exclusively without someone else. I'm not sure they're always going to want to be in the middle of my game.
