Quite a claim, isn’t it? Microsoft chief financial officer Peter Klein made a statement during a conference call that the company’s own Kinect is the “fastest selling consumer electronic in history”. That would make Kinect a faster seller than every other game console of this generation.
Klein also said during the call that that Microsoft’s Entertainment & Devices division has grown 55% in the past year. The division, which generated $3.7 billion in revenue in Q4 of 2010, encompasses Xbox 360 and PC gaming, the Zune, and the recently released Windows Phone 7. Growth has been attributed to the sale of 6.3 million Xbox 360 consoles during the holiday season, an increase of 21% from last year, as well as the sale of 8 million Kinect sensors in the first 60 days of launch.
