The result is pretty predictable. After selling more than 2.5 Million Kinect in the first month, 8 Million Kinect in the second month, reaching to 10 Million is very possible and predictable. Microsoft has stated that they’ve finally sold over 10 million units Kinect, and it’s one of the fastest selling consumer electronic that ever exist.
What make it great is the fact that the Kinect hardware has got no decent titles to support the accessories. There is only Dance Central that looks promising, and that alone has made a successful 500 million dollars marketing campaign that Microsoft has done to Kinect. Their advertising fee doesn’t spent for nothing after all.
“The sales figures here speak for themselves,” says Gaz Deaves, gaming editor for Guinness World Records. “According to independent research, no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, which is an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector.”
Congratulation to Microsoft for their achievement! What’s left now is to wait for the Major announcement that Microsoft will do in this month for Xbox 360. We have no clue yet what they’ll announce but let’s hope they can bring us more amazing surprises like Kinect.
