Kinect Shifts 1 Million Units at Launch.

Party hats and blowers at the ready, Microsoft’s new controller “Kinect for Xbox 360” has sold over 1 million units in its first 10 days of availability, this is not them kicking back and retiring yet, they have projected a planned 5 million units to be sold by the end of the year, a number becoming ever more likely as the days go on and the sales and popularity for Kinect rises and rises.

So what did they have to say about it? Heres Microsofts President of Interactive Entertainment Don Mattrick on the Subject

“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. 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.”

“Yeah Microsoft, i’m happy for you and i’ll let you finish. But Sony has the greatest motion controller of all time. Of All Time.”

Microsoft have confirmed that the news is total ammount of Kinects sold, not shipped. This maybe in retaliation to Sony announcing that they “shipped” 1 million Move controllers, but then the best selling Move game at launch having sold less than 30,000 copies.

Just Saying, Just Saying. We at angry bee have no bias towards a single system.
