Microsoft has scored a "flawless" victory with Kinect sales

Playstation Plus is giving gamers a bit more value for their dollar with online savegame storage
PlayStation online game save storage will be released March 10

A couple of huge announcements have been released in the gaming world today as Sony broadens its features for the PlayStation Plus and Microsoft's Kinect for Xbox 360 receives the Guinness World Record for Fastest Selling Consumer Electronics Device. 

Sony will launch online storage for PS3 game saves tomorrow, which will be part of the annual $50 subscription. This new feature provides users with 150MB of space in the cloud available for 1,000 save files, and copy-prohibited files can be backed up as long as users only restore deleted files from their system once a day.

In addition, games to be released in the future will be able to save directly to the PlayStation Network. This will be released tomorrow in PS3 firmware v3.60, allowing users to completely bypass their local HDD. 

While PlayStation gamers celebrate the new features unveiling tomorrow, Microsoft has some celebrating of its own to do.

Microsoft announced today that the Kinect for Xbox 360 has been named the Fastest Selling Consumer Electronics Device by Guinness World Records. To date, 10 million Kinect sensors have been sold worldwide, with another 10 million standalone Kinect games sold globally to date.

My wife hates anything electronic I buy she refers to it as more crap I'll never use.

However she loves Kinect and comes home from work to play it. First time Ive ever seen her play a video game since Ms Pac Man on the kids arcade cabinet. Its also something our whole family gets into. Comical to see my 7 year old challenge my wife to a dance off. My wife and kids love it. I enjoy it a lot but Im more of a first person shooter so Kinect fills my goofy side and my PC fills my serious gamer side.

This is one game I see everyone wanting to do especially at a party.

I also hope the star wars game they are going to release at the end of the year is good. I need to get my star wars kid on.

The only thing im concerned with is that Microsoft continues to keep the games rolling for Kinect. Im also considering getting one for my PC because the homebrew stuff is starting to look very cool. Especially those merging Kinect with Movie/short film production of virtual actors.
