Kinect hacked to work on the PlayStation 3

Hacker Shantanu Goel has got his Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect accessory to work with the Sony PlayStation 3. He achieved the feat by connecting the Kinect to his laptop, which is running PrimeSense's Kinect drivers (as well as the OpenNI Libraries and the NITE Libraries). The movement is converted into raw tracking data and reconverted into PS3-compliant data via the DIYPS3Controller.

I have the kinect for the xBox. Reminds me of the mindless fun I had on the Wii for a day until I realized that the Wii was more accurate. Wish I could get my money back. Every cool feature on the XBox cost money and I am just not that into first person shooters outside of a PC. Better move would be the move on all of the systems. That would excite me. Much more accurate tracking with it. Sorry Xbox but a waggle with a wii remote or a waggle with your body is still a waggle.

I'd sue everyone with a PS3 as a possible hacker. They have the one thing they need to hack a PS3. A PS3.

Don't forget those that have been to the Microsoft store, newegg or Amazon and looked at the Kinect page ... we can keep an army of lawyers busy for decades trying to track down all those ip addresses.

Ok, just play the Move with the PS3. The Kinect is not as good of quality as the Move.

Sony will sue MS, the guy than made the kinetic, the guy than took the video, the kinect itself and all of us for commenting on this.

It is really a good idea, the ps3 wasnt the one getting hacked, but rather the Kinect. However i think the ps3 is better off with Move.

You aren't thinking big enough. I'd sue everyone with a computer, because they can easily hack a friend's PS3.
