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...


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?

Day after Thanksgiving which is November 25th so Black Friday will be November 26th

Pre orders means nothing for Casual Gaming and mostly will be sold with bundles...

Tis true, which is why I never understood the hate Move got with it's pre-orders.

OT: I think 3-4mill is a safer bet, but Kinect may outdo everyone's intial expectations.



                                                                                                                                            

interesting, i have to imagine that MS expects kinect to be supply limited at least until the other side of the holidays.  guess this means they expect more units availible this year. 



I have been debating on picking up 2 when I go to get mine to have one to sell on ebay. Just not sure if they are going to be low on supply or if they can make plenty.

i feel pretty confident they will be in low supply.  i'm not sure how much money you can make or if it will be worth your while but making some money is pretty much a guarentee.  worse case senorio take it back to the store for a refund after the holiday. 

i talked to a guy on the train when the ps3 released and he payed $1,500 for a ps3 on ebay.  never, NEVER underestimate the stupidity of people.



VGChartz appears to be very bearish on the sales of Kinect.

Microsoft, unsurprisingly, is not. 

IT will be very interesting to watch Chartz, and other tracking agencies stats on sales of kinect I think.



Hmmm . . . this close to release to up the holiday sales expectations SO much means they must have some measurable evidence that demand is HIGHER than they originally anticipated.  The fact that they made it public so close to launch leads credence to that thought.

Folks . . . I think it's safe to say that this is going to be pretty big, whether you like it or not.



Who cares what it sells? I just want mine! I cannot wait to get it.

Maybe he was searching for stuff like this:
