Guinness World Records:

Guinness World Records, the global authority on record breaking, today confirm that the Kinect for the Xbox 360 is the Fastest-Selling Consumer Electronics Device.  The hardware, that allows controller-free gaming, sold through an average of 133,333 units per day, for a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days on sale from 4 November 2010 to 3 January 2011.

The sales figures outstrip both the iPhone and the iPad for the equivalent periods after launch

Guess Microsoft isn’t dead yet. Windows 7 was a great step forward after the Vista failure. The Xbox 360 sells well, and now with the Kinect they are reaching a whole new audience.  I never wanted an Xbox before, I was fine with my gaming PC, Wii, and PS3, but now with Kinect, I’m very tempted to buy one. Played it a few times at a friends house and it’s really cool, wish I had one when I was a kid.
