Microsoft’s Mat Barlow has revealed in an interview with GamesIndustry International that Microsoft has shipped 20 million Kinect units thus far.
“We’re at 20 million now, and again, that number’s just continuing to grow,” said Barlow when asked how much the Kinect has sold. “And I know we’ve seen holiday cycles like this. Gift givers coming out to buy Kinect is really going to be a large chunk of the console units sold these days. So 20 million units of Kinect and at the end of this holiday that number should be creeping up as well.”
This might be thanks to the increasing number of Kinect titles that have been released this year. The biggest release was Kinect: Star Wars, but we have seen Kinect games based on Dragon Ball Z and Harry Potter as well.
