GameStop VP Says Kinect Will Probably Outsell Move
GameStop’s senior vice president for merchandizing is Bob McKenzie. He told Eurogamer that Kinect will outsell the Playstation Move this year. Or, rather, I think that’s what he said. Here is a chain of quotes that is the result of Eurogamer asking him whether Kinect or Move will win the holidays:
I’d say right now Microsoft’s Kinect is looking to be the winner of the two for us.
We’re very happy with the sell through over the weekend. It has met our expectations and actually exceeded our initial forecasts.
I do have them both obviously and the Move sports bundle is a great option, but I knew for my family – with an eight-year-old daughter and ten-year-old boy – that Kinect was really going to be the thing that was more geared towards my household.
It seems pretty clear at first, but then he starts talking about how Kinect is better for his family, and since Eurogamer has yet to publish the full text of its interview with McKenzie, I’ll just assume the “us” McKenzie is talking about is his family rather than his chain of stores, because that’s a personally reasonable assumption to make.
