    1. No they're not. Not even close and I'm not going to bother listing the differences/exclusives.

    2. Do you think because yours does nothing, everyone elses does nothing? My 360 does nothing.

    ... Sorry, I've never had a shortage of games on my 360.

    Nor has anyone else.

    Sony really should hire you, already.

    Well, neither does the Sony machine. So everyone can just whip their c***s back into their pants now.

    Man who would have guessed this would have turned into another PS3/360 pissing contest.

    Kinect: Eurogamer can reveal how Microsoft will improve its accuracy.


    Currently, Kinect passes information to the Xbox 360 through a variety of streams. But Microsoft will soon allow developers to "turn off sound or depth", thus enabling Kinect to concentrate on sending a video feed, for example, of higher quality.

    "If it had just have been a video feed from a camera, it would have been of really good quality," a Eurogamer source close to Kinect development said. "But the fact it's sending sound, depth and video is what tends to clog the bandwidth."

    The Kinect camera outputs in 640x480, but the depth buffer is 320x240. Microsoft restricts the resolution of Kinect because of Xbox 360 USB limitations revealed by Eurogamer last year.

    Most Xbox 360 games are 1280x720, but with Kinect outputting in 640x480, the video feed is smaller than the display picture, stretching it out.

    "What people would ideally want is that it's at least 1:1 mapping," continued our source. "That's what they're working on. You can do Augmented Reality-type things, and if you want to just turn off the depth of the sound for a moment, then you can ask for the higher-quality video feed.

    "Microsoft has been quite clever and canny in that they have put slightly more expensive pieces into the Kinect, which is why it's expensive, even though you can't access them immediately. But in software hopefully we'll be able to do this, now the PC people worked it out quite quick."

    Improvements are also being made to the way Kinect tracks skeletons.


    "You're going to see some pretty big improvements. The hardware is slightly more capable than the software. There are so many places it can be improved through clever software. Microsoft is doing its bit low level. Game designers are learning how to deal with this kind of data. Everything is going to be drastically improved through software."

    Right. Which is why I'd never say something baseless like that against the PS3.

    They both have mostly multi-platform games and each have a handful of exclusives.

    It was Gunny here that tried to take the silly "games" jab.

    I didn't say anything negative about the PS3. I own one.

    There are just not that many exclusive games on PS3 that make it superior to the 360. Fanboy nonsense.

    All you do is make baseless jabs.

    The handful of exclusives is rubbish.
