Gamers didn’t really know what to make of Microsoft’s Kinect in the run-up to the peripheral’s release. But it looks like John Q. Public knows exactly what to make of the motion control system as consumers have purchased ten million Kinect sensors worldwide as of January 3rd.
Each of those ten million consumers also weren’t shy about buying Kinect-enabled games as retailers also sold “ten million standalone Kinect games.” And that number doesn’t count the ten million copies of Kinect Adventures that were sold as a bundle with the sensor.
According to the people at Guinness World Records, this makes the Kinect the “fastest selling consumer electronics device” ever.
