Kinect is the 'fastest-selling consumer electronics device in history' - Microsoft

Platform holder claims that the motion sensing cam is a record breaker

Peter Klein, chief financial officer at Microsoft, has labeled Kinect the "fastest-selling consumer electronics device in history".

The executive made the claim in a financial conference call last night.


Microsoft said yesterday that its Entertainment & Devices division - which houses the Xbox 360, PC games, Zune and Windows Phone 7 businesses - saw big leaps in revenues and profit during the quarter ended December 31.

The company sold 6.3 million Xbox 360s during the three month period and shipped eight million Kinect units.
