Gizmodo:"We've seen the Kinect get hacked already, but we're still tickled by this little mod which allows you to run the Microsoft gadget on Mac OS X. Yes, the idea alone feels oh-so-very-wrong, but how can you resist such fun?"
This will make kinect sell more if more software is released. Wonder what people these clever people could do
Kinect Apps incoming.
The question is: How much MS is losing on each Kinect unit sold?
they are gaining between 50/60 $ on each one.
Data? Are you discounting the US$500,000,000.00 ads?
you have a point there. But that would mean they almost never can make profit on the kinect alone. They would have to take in account the possible gain on extra consoles and software. And seeing the quality of the titles and the price they're asking, I can see where they hope to milk the crowd.
Unlike the console industry, it actually never hurts MS to sell a Kinect unit. It isn't sold at a loss! The ad cost is fixed regardless of how many people buy it so it is a non-issue.
Just a matter of time before Kinect works on the PS3, then maybe I might just consider getting one.
If you have the PSjailbreak maybe, otherwise I dont think its going to happen, they made the drivers for it on the PC and MAC they didnt actually do anything to the kinect itself.
Even if he has the jailbreak. its something very far fetched for kinect to work on ps3.
I was wondering if I would have to buy a hole new Xbox to use it..Is the Kinect game specific? http://illumibritesite.com/
Imagine taking calls from your iPhone in your living room with a simple gesture and using the build in mic from Kinect to talk. That would actually upgrade Kinect from a gimmick to something useful.
