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.

Great. A lot of idiots bought Kinect. We all know that the list of Kinect games, past present and future, will be crap. Now, about the Kinect SDK....

So Kinect allows you use hand signals to turn on the friggin lights...like the clapper? So this is the "new hopefulness for 360" nonsense that the 360 people are spouting now?

"We have no good Kinect software worth playing right now and no new IP's have been announced for this year, but the technology behind Kinect is really awesome"!

Stupid shit you read on internet forums from nutcases who've invested too much in the Xbox360.

Be quiet, PlayStation fanboy. Just because you are unable to fathom that people out there actually enjoy what the Xbox 360 provides, it doesn't mean the Xbox is not worth the money.

All of this frustration over the ongoing successes of the Xbox is no good for your health, my friend. Find a more productive hobby.

I would suggest maybe picking up a dancing game, such as something from this list:
