Xbox Kinect, Microsoft’s motion controller, has been crowned the fastest selling consumer electronics device ever by Guinness World Records. The add-on sold a massive 133,000 units daily during its first 60 days on sale.

That figure falls just shy of the 8 million Kinects Microsoft said it had sold by the first week of January 2011. The hands-free controller system appears to have outstripped Sony’s PlayStation Move completely, while also outdoing both the iPad and iPhone in terms of early sales.

Because people you know represents the rest of society.

Anyway, wasn't entirely surprising really. I only have one because it was a gift. Wasn't planning on spending my own money on it, but I'm glad I did receive one though. Bundles of fun.

Doesn't surprise me to be honest :) there was alot of hype about it months before the release and with it also being released so close to the holiday season many would have more than likely made it a main Christmas Present :) got to agree though it is alot of fun and in the end I do feel well worth the money :)

That kind of surprises me as when I first heard about Project Natal I was so excited and couldn't wait for Kinect to come out and when I got one I thought everyone would want to play but nobody I know seems to know what it is or even heard of it!

One friend actually thought I was inviting them for a game of Connect 4!

In My Humble Opinion..
Its about time something like Kinect came out because Wii is crap...
All you have to do is sit on a settee and wiggle your arms around to get cheevo's
