The Xbox 360 Kinect will outsell Apple’s highly successful iPad – that’s the claim being made by Microsoft at the Tokyo Game Show.
The pre-orders have been really strong,” official Kinect spokesperson Kudo Tsunoda told Gamasutra. As far as what we’re looking at for holiday, this is going to be stuff that’ll blow away any of the sales you’ve seen with iPad.
The Xbox 360 is already selling better than the Wii and Sony right now. Kinect’s really just going to boost that to a whole new level.”
Note that the Apple iPad sold an impressive 1m units in its first 28 days on the market and hit 3m unit sales in three months. Yesterday Microsoft claimed that it expects sales of 3m+ for Kinect over the ‘holiday’ period.
