Kinect is just huge...

Bundle with Adventures could do close to 1 million next week... 5.5m by year end.

Kinect Sports will get close to 2.0m by year end.

Dance central will come close or pass 1.0m.

Kinectimal will pass 0.5m.

All of this will have happened in just 8 weeks.

Thats 10m software units attributable to Kinect by year end.

You for got to mention those weeks took place on the holiday season.

 

and?

you arent impressed then?

I'm not impressed at all of Kinect games sales, and I'm not surprised either when you consider the games.. Kinect Adventures, well that's a given since you must buy it when you buy a Kinect. The other two best titles in quality by far, Kinect Sports and Dance Central, are (or will be) million sellers.

Beyond that, I don't see any other games out now ever reaching that mark. Most will struggle to reach half that mark. And this is during the holiday season, which provides a huge lift to games sales.. What will Kinect game sales be like in the slow periods next year? I think that Star Wars game should do well, but aside from that I litterally see no other Kinect games that will achieve success, now or in future releases.

I mean obviously there will be more titles announced that are of better quality, but if the games can't even sell NOW, during the Kinect launch and on the strength of the holiday season, I wouldn't expect that to last long.

Not a matter of being impressed or not, holiday season inflates sales by a very large margin. If kinect launched in late summer or spring, whatever it would take much more than 8 weeks to achieve what it is achieving.

Thats why it is important to mention it did that on the holiday season, otherwise I could brag about Wii selling 1.5 million units per week all the year =)


I don't really see that.  Even though it is the holiday season, that doesn't make Wii or GT5 (in EMEAA) sales any less impressive, nor should it with Kinect.  



For any that say bundled games always far outsell non-bundled games, I present a Sports competition ...

20
Kinect Sports (X360)
Microsoft
6 273,677 1,246,435
34
Sports Champions (PS3)
Sony Computer Entertainment
13 157,527 1,274,206

And before someone jumps me (again), Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort aren't here because they didn't launch this 'season'.

Outside of Kinect Sports and Dance Central, which should both sell upwards of a million by the end of 2010 (Kinect Sports could be at 2 million), theres also Kinectimals, which should pass 500k by the end of the year.  Its one of those games that'll easily pass a million mark by next fall.  Even games like Your Shape and Joy Ride could reach upwards of 700k .  I think the key with kinect software is gonna be legs, and the sales charts are showing it (mixed with the holiday boost).

As far as future games, there arent many, but thats mainly b/c we have no idea whats really coming out in the 2nd half of 2011.  The only early games I can think of that could sell really well would be the Michael Jackson Experience game (seeing as how popular Dance Central is) and the UFC Trainer game (supposed to be out in April or May 2011). 

I think we'll be seeing alot of kinect support and games announced at next years E3.  I wonder if MS could possibly sell 10 million Kinect Units by next years E3.

the point he was trying to make was that the lowest selling one IS bundled... the other isnt.

It's not bundled everywhere. And what people have to understand is that alot of title already released are Move compatible now, while only games made for Kinect are playable wth Kinect. Now I'm letting you continue your pointless comparisons.

yeah, you're right the only sales comparison that matters is the MOVE v Kinect one.

But since we can't know for sure how much Move has sold,we can't really do a comparison,can we?
