Kinect claims electronics sales record from Guinness World Records

By Steve Watts, Mar 09, 2011 3:15pm PST

Microsoft announced today that Kinect for Xbox 360 has sold over 10 million units, setting a new consumer electronics sales record. Guinness World Records has officially named Kinect the fastest selling consumer electronics device, after selling approximately 8 million units in its first 60 days on the market.

Paired with the announcement was word that over 10 million standalone Kinect games have been sold as well. "The sales figures here speak for themselves," said Gaz Deaves of Guinness in the announcement. "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."

This isn't the first we've heard of strong Kinect sales. After Microsoft's forecast of five million in the holiday season, we heard it had sold a cool million in ten days and 2.5 million in a month.
