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.

Oh my! A MS hardware product that sold way more in a short time than anything Apple has done. That should be in the record books too!

I know many are using the Kinect to run their home theatre computers/systems. This thing is pretty sweet.

Microsoft Got Kinect Because "Apple is a Pain in the Ass"

Of course, it wouldn't be fair to only point at Apple; other companies like Nintendo, for example, had a chance to pick up a Kinect-like device and run with it.
