The Guinness World Records team has crowned Microsoft’s Kinect as the fastest selling consumer electronics device in history, topping even Apple’s popular iPad. Kinect is Microsoft’s motion sensing game controller for the Xbox 360.
Kinect sells faster than iPad
Microsoft sold some eight million Kinects during the first 60 days of availability, according to the BBC. “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,” commented Gaz Davies, Guinness World Records Gamer Edition editor.
Kinect sales have already topped 10 million since they first went on sale in November 2011. In comparison, Apple reported selling about 15 million iPads in about nine months.
