Kinect Is Fastest-Selling Electronics Device Ever, Says Guinness
According to the famous record-checking company, the eight million Kinects sold in its first 60 days on the market is the highest sales total of any consumer electronics device in that time period. Hooray for gimmicks, I guess.
That’s kind of a crazy idea, but most important for Microsoft is that it represents a victory of Apple; the Guinness press release doesn’t have any sort of ranked list so we can properly put this number in context, but it does point out that this is more than any Apple device has ever sold in an equivalent period. That’s definitely worth celebrating with some Dance Central and Guinness. It’s worth Microsoft celebrating, I mean. I’m not going to celebrate because I don’t care.
