Kinect sells 2.5 Million in first 25 days

 

Earlier this month we announced that Kinect hit the million mark in 10-days. Today, we’ve got some new numbers to share: With the help of Black Friday last week, Kinect has now sold over 2.5 Million units around the world.

 

I’ll add a link to the official press release when once it is posted.

 

Edit: Here is the official press release

    Not bad? Some might say it’s rather good. At that rate it’ll be 5 million in 50 days.

    I have a kinect and I’m enjoying it but what’s the schedule for more games that are unique? Looks pretty empty now.

    Now we just need some A++ games. Wouldn’t mind seeing a couple Hironobu Sakaguchi kinect RPGs. Would be interesting to see what he could come up with.

    Kinect is great, I still chuckle at the people who have written it off. The ones who haven’t have a lot of fun playing it’s games.

    Quality hardware wasn’t exactly something I was doubting from Microsoft though, you don’t put this much effort into something you’re not sure you can pull off.

    Good job, I’ll more than likely pick one up during the summer or around the release of Child of Eden. I’m also hoping one of the Japanese games sees a release by the end of the year.

    Although I’ll definitely pick up a 3-4 of the launch titles. I definitely want Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, and Dance Central after reading reviews and seeing gameplay videos. Kinect Sports will be the first game I break out though, it was loads of fun when I tried it at Best Buy.

    Great job. I knew it would do well. I love Kinect Sports. Bowling online and making my avatar dance after strikes just makes the game great.

    Excellent.

    I have all 3 motion control systems (Wii, Move and Kinect) and I find Kinect to be the best choice so far. Wii just feels off for 95% of the games, Move is just a slightly better Wii with crap games so far, but the games for Kinect have been fun for the most part.

    Admit it major, you guys at MS make starfleet estimates. You knew damn well you were gonna sell 6 million kinects so you predict 5 so you can look more impressive when you outsell your prediction. Mr Scott would be proud.

    BTW, any data on 360 sales on black friday?

    I love kinect, and when ya’ll make it compatible with the whole dashboard and netflix I’ll get on one knee and ask it to marry me…lol. But seriously, kinect is a WONDERFUL thing.

    “WAIT will my xbox live vision camera still be good for a video call?” – Yep. Even though it’s now called “Kinect Chat” on the dashboard, it works with either Kinect of the Live Vision Camera.

    @AutomaticOcelot – All of the Microsoft sold off their IKEA stock weeks before the Kinect launch😉
