There is no doubt that Microsoft is big in the operating system market and office products. However, they also have another huge cash cow in the form of Xbox 360, the gaming console. It looks like it now has another one in the form of Microsoft Kinect.
Since it’s launch 10 days ago, Microsoft has sold over 1 million units of the Kinect and are claiming to sell about 5 million units by the end of this year. With Black Friday coming up next week and the holiday season to follow, their claim will definitely come true.
Microsoft’s Kinect is in direct competition to the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Move by Sony, which is available on the Xbox rival PS3. Microsoft also recently announced that the more than 25 million Xbox LIVE members have spent more than 1 billion hours on the service a month, an average of over 40 hours per member.
Microsoft Kinect sensor is available for purchase for $149.99 with an Xbox bundle starting at $299.99.
P.S. We will be giving away a Microsoft Kinect to one lucky winner in the next few days, so stay tuned and subscribe to our RSS Feeds or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
