I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Tired of Hearing About Kinect?

Microsoft doesn't care. They're going to keep talking... and talking... and Ellen is going to keep dancing... and Oprah... and... *Phew* That's the kind of thing that has to happen for Kinect to sell 3 Million units this holiday.

That's the word from Aaron Greenberg, Chief of Staff at Microsoft. He's reiterating what's been said at Tokyo Game Show and by Kudo Tsunoda. Speaking with Eurogamer, Greenberg elaborated on what Microsoft expects of Kinect this holiday season.

"We haven't given any projections beyond this holiday, but this will be the largest launch we've ever had as a business. We'll definitely sell more sensors than the Wii sold when it launched or the Xbox 360 sold when it launched.

We feel safe we'll do three million this holiday, which puts us in pretty high territory for even a consumer electronics product."


Those are some mighty big words, but if anyone knows big business, it's Microsoft.

That being said... Here's what I think: The Wii was held back not by people's demand or desire to purchase the console. It was held back by production. If there was no limit in that area, I am 100% Kinect would not be outselling the Wii's initial numbers.

Of course, I'm a member of the enthusiast press. I don't know what "casual" gamers want. Don't listen to me. I don't matter anymore. Your new source for video game news are daytime talk show hosts.
