Microsoft has upped its Holiday sales predictions for Kinect; according to Bloomberg’s news tech reporter Dina Bass, the giant now expects to shift 5 million units during the holiday season.

Bass delivered the news via Twitter. Microsoft man Aaron Greenberg lends credibility by retweeting.

Microsoft itself as well as analysts previously predicted the motion device to sell around 3 million in the months following its release.

The device will launch in North America tomorrow. Europe will follow next Wednesday.

wow



That is a 66% more than expected. Good for them.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

They should have kept the expectations at 3. At least that way it was likely to meet the expectation.

Preorders don't look too good for it...



Thats.... a lot

We shall see... plus I dont particularly think pre-orders count for much here, wait until Black Friday in the US, this will sell like crazy.

Sorry for asking again... when is it?

I don't know. Preorders must count for something if they are apparently sold out with 250k Worldwide. Doesn't look too promising for supply OR demand really. You'd expect more available.

No doubt it's gonna be big on Black Friday though. So many deals will be going on.
