A friend of mine has the Nyko Zoom as he only has a small gaming area (his wife wont allow his console in the living room and he has to play all his games in the spare bedroom *sound of whip cracking* haha).
I have to say from my experience the horror stories are wrong, it really does work very well! He only has a couple of Kinect games up to now as he is a new covert to the hardware but what he does have really works well.
I would definitely consider it for a restricted gaming space.
