Kinect’s way of making ‘user as the controller’ has worked for Microsoft. The Redmond giant has confirmed that its revolution gaming sensor has sold more than 10m units worldwide also driving Kinect-standalone games to more than 10m.
Another interesting thing about this milestone is that it has bagged the award for becoming fastest selling consumer electronics device by Guinness World Records. Microsoft managed to sell an average of 133,333 units per day, for a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days, which is more an iPhone or iPad for the equivalent period.
Gaz Deaves, Editor of Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition, said: “The sales figures here speak for themselves. We can confirm that no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector.”
