Kinect made Guinness book as the fastest selling electronic device

You know when you have a winner on your hands, right? Yep, when it makes the top list as the fastest selling consumer electronic device in the world, as Microsoft announced yesterday, with well deserved pride. And it looks like it still sells, in the number of 133,333 (nice number) devices a day, over 8 million of them sold in the first two month since on the market and currently well past 10 million mark.

The Kinect games also sold fairly well, without counting the Kinect Adventures included by default with all the Kinect kits, Microsoft sold over 10 million games as well, which considering the debatable quality of many of them, is still a pretty nice figure.

Comparatively, Sony’s Move controller only sold about 4.1 million in the same time frame, while being significantly cheaper.

The new record will be included in the next Guinness World Record Gamer’s edition recognizing record breaking achievements in the world of video games. Kinect sold at the full price during Holidays but is currently on sale at Amazon for a lower than MSRP price.
