With Christmas fast approaching there are normally shortages of various things, the Xbox Kinect was one that had been feared for this year. Microsoft’s UK and Ireland boss Neil Thompson and Stephen McGill have thankfully denied the claims so let’s hope they’re right.
I would say that the worry has come due to the overwhelming popularity of the innovative device. Kinect made it’s way onto the scene worldwide starting in North America on November 4th and finishing up in Japan on November 20th, which means they achieved their first big task of releasing the Kinect worldwide within 3 weeks.
According to Johnny Cullen at vg247.com Microsoft has announced within the last week that they had hit the midway point for their targeted sales, the full target is 5 million and they have now shifted 2.5 million units in no more than 25 days, which is pretty amazing but still quite worrying for stock levels.
