Kinect clocks up 10 million sales

Kinect Microsoft’s hands free controlling device has notched up a massive 10 million unit sales in it’s first three months since the release back on the 4th November 2010.

Guinness World Records has awarded it the title of fastest selling consumer electronics device ever. The peripheral sold an average of 133,333 units per day in its first 60 days between 4th November 2010 and 3rd January 2011.

Given the limited amount of titles released to date they are impressive numbers and with the promise of some exciting games in the pipeline the future looks bright for the Kinect.

Granted it’s never going to appeal to core gamers who own a 360 for the likes of Black Ops etc. but as alternative to the likes of PS3 Move and the Nintendo Wii it does have it’s place, especially with the younger generation.
