Microsoft ships 8 million Kinects

Motion sensing camera hits milestone in just 60 days

Microsoft has shipped eight million Kinect units and "far surpassed" five million sold to consumers in the motion sensing peripheral's first 60 days on the market.

CEO Steve Ballmer announced the figures at the company's Consumer Electronics Show keynote speech, which were later confirmed to Bloomberg reporter Dina Bass.


The sales total surpasses Microsoft's previous holiday season forecasts, initially of three million units and later five million.

The firm said yesterday that Kinect isn't linked to a bunch of new instances of the Xbox 360's 'red ring of death'.
