Xbox 360 Kinect sensor sells 2.5 million in 25 days
Friday 03 December 2010
The Xbox 360's new hands-free control system, Kinect, sold 2.5 million units worldwide in the 25 days since its regional debut in North America on November 4.
1 million of those were sold in the first ten days of availability, with 25,000 sold in Japan during Kinect's opening weekend there, November 20 & 21.
The company has stated that it aims to sell a worldwide total of 5 million units before the year is out.
The device was supported by a range of games, including Kinectimals, Dance Central, Kinect Adventures, Kinect Joy Ride and Kinect Sports.
Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo all have motion controllers on the market. The Wii shipped with motion sensing Wiimotes when it launched in 2006, and the PlayStation 3 received its own advanced take on the Wiimotes when its suite of Move controllers went on sale this September.
Sony responded by revealing that worldwide sales of its PlayStation Move motion controller had reached 4.1 million since September 15.
