After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Microsoft Sells 8 Million Kinects in 2 Months

Posted on Thursday, January 6 @ 09:14:23 PST by

Last night during Microsoft's 2011 CES press conference, Steve Ballmer, President and CEO of Microsoft, announced that they've reached an amazing milestone with their Kinect motion-sensor. Since it's November 4, 2010 launch date, Microsoft has sold over 8 million Kinects in just 60 days. Though, Ballmer went on to clarify that this number was "sold to retailers" not sold through to customers, it's still a massive amount of Kinect units moved to retail channels.

Shortly before Kinect was released, Microsoft had estimated that they would sell over 5 million Kinects throughout the holiday season. With 8 million units shipped to retailers, it would seem that they reached or at least came very close to reaching that goal, as it's hard to believe that there are over 3 million Kinects just sitting on store shelves and in back-room inventory.

There is little doubt that Kinect has become a runaway success, but you really can't blame Microsoft for boasting. Expect an onslaught of Kinect-enabled titles to release throughout the year, as Microsoft has been saying all along that 2011 would be "all about Kinect".

In related news, Ballmer also announced that the Xbox 360 has reached 50 million units sold worldwide.
