It seems Black Friday was good to Microsoft. The company announced that their Kinect peripheral for Xbox 360 has sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide to date.
“We are thrilled about the consumer response to Kinect, and are working hard with our retail and manufacturing partners to expedite production and shipments of Kinect to restock shelves as fast as possible to keep up with demand,” said Don Mattrick, Microsoft's president of the Interactive Entertainment Business. “With sales already exceeding two and a half million units in just 25 days, we are on pace to reach our forecast of 5 million units sold to consumers this holiday.”
Kinect made its debut in North America on November 4th. Since then, it's been released in 37 other countries. You can purchase the Kinect sensor (with a free copy of Kinect Adventures) for $149.99. The sensor is also available in bundles with the 250 GB and 4 GB Xbox 360 models.
