Kinect sells over 8 million units… smashes the expected figure

1 min read

Major Nelson has tweeted this morning that Microsoft has now sold over 8 million Kinect units in their first 60 days.

While he isn’t specifying whether that is shipped to retail or customers it is impossible to ignore huge figures like that and the doom mongers who scoffed at the original 3 million figure brandished by Microsoft must now be feeling a little sheepish.

He also went on to mention that the Xbox 360 has also now passed the 50 million mark worldwide and that the Xbox Live membership count has now breached 30 million.

Those are some pretty amazing numbers and you can expect there to be a lot of champagne flowing in Redmond today.
