Microsoft Kinect has been nothing short of a success off the balance sheet and on. It has been selling in mass, been hacked to bits, and has the potential to change the lives of millions of people.

Microsoft has announced that 10 million Kinect sensors and 10 million Kinect games have been sold which Guinness World Records denotes that the Kinect for Xbox 360 is the fastest-selling consumer electronics device. The record set was that the Kinect sold 8 million units in 60 days: Microsoft states on the Xbox Press Page;
"The sales figures here speak for themselves," said Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor for Guinness World Records. "According to independent research, no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, which is an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector."
This means that the Kinect has outsold the iPad, iPhone and every other hot selling device that has hit the market to date; a notable achievement. This sales success clearly shows that consumers are ready to ditch the controller and that interactive gaming is here to stay.

I think it's something new to the market, once the iPad2 is released I can see that beating this record.

Ah. Well, I am not that lucky. The iPad 2 was released today in the United States but I will not be able to get one till June. Due to lack of money.
