  1. Microsoft has announced that it has sold 10 million units of its Kinect motion controller. At the same time, Guinness World Records has officially named Kinect for Xbox 360 the "fastest-selling consumer electronics device." Microsoft sold an average of 133,333 Kinect units per day for a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days between November 4, 2010 and January 3, 2011.

    I went to my favorite electronics store yesterday and saw the consoles section the Kinect was all alone, it was even depressing considering that theres always people dancing Poker Face, maybe the paranoia is over? who knows but those games are boring for me because they are rather "monkey see monkey do" since the potential of the Kinect has not yet been archived.

    They'll sell the next 10 mil units more quickly if pron industry has its way, but I agree with Cota, about 'potential' issues of the device for now.
