Microsoft sold over 8 million Kinects in 60 days

LAS VEGAS | Wed Jan 5, 2011 10:54pm EST

(Reuters) - Microsoft Corp sold more than 8 million of its Xbox Kinect motion-sensing game system in its first 60 days since launch, outpacing its target of 5 million and outshining Sony Corp's competing Move.

The Japanese electronics maker sold 4.1 million units of its Move, which like the Kinect tracks body gestures for video games, in its first two months. However, that figure did not take into account the peak December holiday shopping month.

Sony launched the Move controller -- a wand-like device that allows users to control on-screen gaming action -- in September in North America and in October in Japan. The device costs $50 for the controller or $400 bundled with a PlayStation 3. Microsoft's Kinect, launched in early November, costs $150 or $300 bundled with a 4 gigabyte Xbox console.

This is great news for Microsoft that they will sold over 8 million kinect in just two month. I think Microsoft make big profits in very short time. Microsoft is best gaming console to play games.While Sony PS3 has bad reputation like hacking server of Sony. This is disappointing for Sony PS3 user. While Xbox has no problem.
