Microsoft Kinect Hacked to Run on Mac OS X

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?"

The story is too old to be commented.

This will make kinect sell more if more software is released. Wonder what people these clever people could do

The question is:

How much MS is losing on each Kinect unit sold?

Moentjers2654d ago

they are gaining between 50/60 $ on each one.

Are you discounting the US$500,000,000.00 ads?

Moentjers2654d ago

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.

wissam2654d ago

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?
