Kinect Score: 2.5 Million Down, 2.5 Million to Go

Microsoft’s Kinect videogame motion sensor passed the one-million-sold milestone after just 10 days at market. And now, 15 days later, it’s passed another: 2.5 million sold in 25 days.

That’s 100,000 units sold per day.

Evidently, already strong demand for the device grew stronger still over the Black Friday weekend, so much so that there’s little doubt that Microsoft will hit the aggressive sales forecast it set for the device at launch. Said Don Mattrick, president of Microsoft’s 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.”

Below, video of Microsoft showing off Kinect at D8.
