He is using a completely unmodified PS3Where to buy 115 249 449 unit, so while this is still a Kinect hack, it is apparently not a PS3 hack. He has met with some success already, and has uploaded a video showing some control over the native XMB interface, as well as the PS3 exclusive game – Killzone 3.
