It’s all official, Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect is the fastest selling consumer electronics device ever.
Gaz Deaves, Editor of Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition, said:
The sales figures here speak for themselves. We can confirm that no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector.
Labeled as a fad by many, Kinect took the world by storm with its futuristic approach to gaming, though a lack of titles since launch has left existing Kinect owners with shiny new kit but few games to use it with. It’s early days though, and few can argue with the hardware’s promise.
