That's one of the biggest peeves I've heard about version 1. But I'd imagine they've improved it some.

The new Kinect is supposedly designed to be functional in smaller rooms compared to the first one. The new minimum requirement is about 4 feet of space, compared to the 6-8 feet for single player in the old one.

The actual quote: http://kotaku.com/how-much-space-do-you-need-to-use-the-new-kinect-512746898

"Single player about 4 ft. 7 in. (1.4 m) from sensor. Two players about 6 ft. (1.8m) from sensor. Play space will vary by game, application, sensor placement, and other factors."

No problem. If you want you can look at this demo video, which shows the person getting fairly close to the sensor without much interference. It may give you a better rough visual representation.
