“We are appreciative of the response we have seen from consumers that has culminated in sales of more than one million units in the first 10 days on the market for Kinect for Xbox 360. This is a great start to the holiday season, and we will continue to work with our retailer partners to keep pace with high demand and deliver against our plan to sell more than five million Kinect sensors worldwide by the end of this year.”
Mattrick's optimism clearly shows the company's faith in the peripheral, but five million Kinects by year's end? That sounds like a stretch, but the industry has seen huge gaming trends explode during the holiday season. Although, one item still remains at large: How many people have injured themselves or broken their TVs because of this peripheral? We're curious, people.
