Kinect Sets World Record As Fastest-Selling Consumer Electronics Device

by Rainier on March 9, 2011 @ 3:54 p.m. PST

Kinect brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways — no controller required. Simple to use and fun to play, Kinect allows owners to jump into Kinect-enabled games for any type of play.The Kinect sensor recognizes you, responds to your gestures, listens to your voice and works with every X360 console.

The record confirmation comes just after the latest release of the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition, which features dedicated sections to Kinect.

“The sales figures here speak for themselves,” said Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor for Guinness World Records. “According to independent research, no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, which is an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector.”

The sales figures outstrip both the iPhone and the iPad for the equivalent periods after launch.

The new record will be included in the next Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition, which recognizes record breaking achievement in the world of videogames.
