This genie of Kinect modification is never going back in the bottle. Now a modder has figured out a way to get the Microsoft device to work with a PlayStation 3.

This is Shantanu Goel, and his code is in a pre-alpha state, but you can see him navigating the Xross Media Bar, starting Killzone 3 and even playing it using a Kinect. Goel says his work needs some fine tuning to allow for better motion tracking, but there's no doubt about it - that's a PS3 and Kinect living together in perfect harmony.

The source code, instructions for installation, compilation and configuration are all at the link, if you're into this sort of thing.
