Microsoft raises Kinect sales projections

You'll buy five million by Christmas.

Microsoft has revised its sales targets for the Kinect system from three million by Christmas to a whopping five million.

TechFlash report that Bloomberg's Dina Bass broke the news on her Twitter feed. A further tweet added, "That would make Kinect the biggest Xbox product launch ever in terms of sales, according to Microsoft's Don Mattrick."

Genuine numbers or is the platform holder just rattling a sabre in Sony's face? Time will tell, but demand does seem to be very high for Microsoft's space-age controller.

Bass also tweeted that Sony was projecting a similar figure for Move, but noted that its motion controller has been on sale a month longer.

You can check out Kinect for yourself from 10th November. If you can find one.
