Psmove service can be great, but it really depends on how many cameras you have and how well aligned they all are. As well as how well you have done the colour configuration. How many cameras do you use? 2 front facing cameras well placed should give you smooth enough 180 degree tracking.

The colour configuration is really important too. Make sure all trackers can see all colours vibrantly. I was using a ping pong tracker for a while, but gave up because I couldn’t get the colours looking right. The 2 psmoves would look great, but the ping pong ball wouldn’t show. Then if I changed the settings to find the ping pong ball, the psmoves wouldn’t show. Nightmare.

I haven’t tried it yet but I expect the kinect is a better option for positional than psmove service.
