Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor Sells Over 2.5 Million

If we didn’t know better, we would have to say that motion is pretty popular in next generation consoles. When people stated that the Kinect senosr would not sell, Microsoft told them to shut up. Just a few days ago, the company released their sales information for the device. It looks like as of November 25, it was able to sell over 2.5 million copies, and that is worldwide for the matter.

So, our question to you is, did you pick up one?

Consumers and retailers continue to show excitement for Kinect for Xbox 360 heading into the Christmas buying season
LONDON – 30 NOVEMBER 2010

“We are thrilled about the consumer response to Kinect, and are working hard with our retail and manufacturing partners to expedite production and shipments of Kinect to restock shelves as fast as possible to keep up with demand,” said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. “With sales already exceeding two and a half million units in just 26 days, we are on pace to reach our forecast of 5 million units sold to consumers this Christmas.”

As Christmas shopping in the UK began in earnest yesterday with Manic Monday, traditionally the busiest internet shopping day of the year, Kinect for Xbox 360 is expected to continue experiencing high sales and strong consumer demand.

Kinect is now available at more than 60,000 retailers in 38 countries. It is the only controller-free games and entertainment system available that lets you control games, movies, music and television with gestures and your voice. Retailers, reviewers and analysts are calling it a must-have gift this holiday season.
