Think the Kinect is a passing fad, with the fact that it just happens to be a camera that manages to track almost every move you make and could have potential gaming applications to it? Well, it might not be as Microsoft has announced that the Kinect has sold one million units just in the past ten days.
While Japan and Asia haven’t experienced the Kinect just yet, Europe and the United States already have the Kinect. And with heavy than expected demand, Microsoft raised its expectations just before its launch to 5 million units sold before the end of the year, from 3 million. Now, it looks like to be on track.
“This is a great start to the holiday season, and we will continue to work with our retailer partners to keep pace with high demand and deliver against our plan to sell more than 5 million Kinect sensors worldwide by the end of this year,” Don Mattrick, President of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business group, said in a statement.
Don’t forget. Black Friday hasn’t approached yet – the day when the holiday shopping season begins – so more units can be snapped up in order to raised that number.
