8 million Kinect units sold

“We are enthusiastic about the consumer response to our holiday lineup of products, including the launch of Kinect. The 8 million units of Kinect sensors sold in just 60 days far exceeded our expectations,” said Peter Klein, chief financial officer at Microsoft in a statement.

Congrats Microsoft! We are glad this is working out 🙂 We are still being wowed by the vast uses of the device and I am sure now Microsoft is too.
