Microsoft unveiled at the CES in Las Vegas and published on the net a video of Xbox IllumiRoomIts new concept makes video games more immersive, since a projection would no longer limit the display of a game to the size of your TV, but to a part of the room in which you are playing.
While we have to admit that the concept is interesting and the wildest rumours suggest that it will be integrated into the next Xbox, Sony has also just released (what a coincidence!) three videos of a similar concept, but covering the whole room and more amazingly.
Although it is written in each of the videos that this is a real-time concept without any post-production additions, some members of YouTube remember the crazy Killzone 2 video that had bluffed us, and finally turned out to be a big fat one. fake. Let's have a look!

Microsoft's "Xbox IllumiRoom" concept :
By relying on an Xbox Kinect sensor (detecting the elements present in the room) and a projector, IllumiRoom from Microsoft extends the field of vision by projecting the image all around the TV screen, on walls and furniture. Like Ambilight by Philips, IllumiRoom is therefore intended to offer the player a total immersion in the image of the game. "Our system uses the appearance and geometry of the part (captured by the Kinect) to adapt a visual projection in real time without having to make any specific graphic adjustments beforehand.explains the Microsoft research team.
IllumiRoom allows an incredible continuity between the virtual world (of video games) and the physical world (the player's room). The important thing is not to get lost in it...
Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo have broadened the scope of their consoles to compete with media streaming boxes such as Roku or Apple TV.
If IllumiRoom was only present at CES Las Vegas as a concept, without revealing quant his intentions to integrate it or not in his future game console, innovation will be presented in more detail at the conference Computer Human Interaction, qui will be held this year in Paris, from 27 April to 2 May.
