Microsoft's Kinect Gaming System Sells 10 Million, Sets World Record

Microsoft not only has a hit on its hands with the Kinect motion-based gaming system: It's got a Guinness World Record.

The company today revealed it has sold 10 million Kinect devices worldwide for the Xbox 360 system. Eight million of those units sold in 60 days -- between its Nov. 4 launch and Jan. 3 -- giving it the official Guinness World Record for fastest-selling consumer electronics device. The group notes that the Kinect beat out both the iPhone and iPad for sales during the equivalent periods after launch.

That's obviously good news for the handful of games that launched along with the device, including the "Dance Central" music game from Harmonix.

Looking ahead, Microsoft says new games are coming, including the Kinect version of the dance game "Michael Jackson: The Experience." Additionally, Microsoft says it is planning to create Kinect-enabled interfaces for Netflix and Hulu Plus, allowing users to control the services with hand-based motions.
