Kinect Sales reach 1 million in 10 Days
 
Buy Kinect from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Microsoft announced that the company sold 1 million Kinect sensors in the 10 days after the Nov. 4 launch world-wide. Microsoft says that they are on pace to reach 5 million by the end of the year. Sony's Playstation Move sold 2.5 million in 30 days. Kinect has expected more momentum. I also expect Microsoft to sell more new Xbox consoles because of Kinect's controller free appeal to new gamers.

"We are appreciative of the response we have seen from consumers that has culminated in sales of more than 1 million units in the first 10 days on the market for Kinect for Xbox 360," said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. "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."

The Kinect sensor and the Kinect Xbox 360 bundles are actually already sold out on Amazon. 3rd party retailer already ask $100 above list price for instance for the 250GB Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle. It looks like we have found the hard to find holiday gift of 2010. It is Xbox Kinect.
