Microsoft's Kinect motion control tech continues its never-ending mod journey - into the realm of PlayStation 3.

Mod magician Shantanu Goel claims to have developed a code which allows a Kinect to be used to control a PS3. With it, he can control the XBM menu, start games and even play them with the motion-detecting Microsoft machine. Here's a video of him doing it:

While Goel's code is still in a pre-alpha state, he's already put it up for download over at PSGroove with instructions on how to use it. So if you fancy running Killzone with a Kinect, go try it yourself. ®
