I pulled cat6 cables to the front of the room and also pulled several 1'' conduits for future cables. But I did not anticipate a proprietary cable with no extender option for the next gen consoles.
So does anybody know how long the included cable will be? Any chance they will make a longer one? How about third parties? Do you think if we rang them up and proved to them there is interest they could make it happen?
The fact that the kinect is coming out for pc gives me hope. Surely there will be a solution............right?
In the end its just a cable, I doubt there's any sort of active electronics in it. There will almost certainly be a third party extension cable if there isn't a first party one. And if there's neither.....you can always just cut the cable in half and make the wire longer using some generic cable or a few standard length replacement cables.
Don't worry, there will be a solution for you guys, one way or another.
