Kinect sells more than 10 million units, scores Guinness World Records nod
Microsoft has made it into the Guinness World Records with its Kinect for Xbox 360, officially the Fastest-Selling Consumer Electronics Device.
The hands-free gaming device sold faster than the various iterations of the iPhone and iPad, as consumers snapped up an average of 133,333 units daily.
That’s a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days on sale, speedier than any competitor in the same period.
Kinect showed up on shelves on Nov. 4 and has since then blazed past 10 million sales worldwide. And that’s without any sex games.
