Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Kinect Adventures to be a 20 million seller? (I'm dead serious)

Mummelmann is the new Prime Minister of Norway ! Congratulations !


Thank you! As my first official act I will form a new law that states that thread necroing is illegal on Norwegian websites to avoid embarrasment in the future. How is PS Move doing, by the way?

Good call OP! The shocking thing for me is that I know that Kinect has sold extremely well but I still don't know more than one person who owns one (out of the 30-40 people I know who have a 360).

Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

TV - Deadwood

Music - Forest Swords 

I'm glad that Microsoft didn't listen to certain investors and analysts that wanted them to pull out off video games after the original Xbox! It isn't for me, but well done Kinect.

I think its a lot more likely that I become the Prime Minister of Norway to be honest.

Kinect will be, in stark contrast to my prior belief, a big hit but I can't see any possible way for it to sell 20 million units.


you can't see any possible way?  Are you that short sighted?  I can think of one very obvious way, they bundle it with every xbox, or how about if they drop the price to 50 bucks?  There are lots of possible ways for this to happen, and far from impossible.  The 360 and kinect are going to be around for another 2 to 3 years at least.  Plenty of time to move 20 million units.  

Hurray!  I wasnt crazy 2 years ago!



I just love these necroed threads. So many funny comments.

To be honest, I really didn't see any possible way back then. I predicted that both Kinect and Move would be flops. Commercially, they are both far from that.

If there's anything this generation should have taught us by now, it is that very thing. Even though I haven't enjoyed a whole lot of games in the past few years, the hardware race and software sales sure has been exciting!
