Forums - Sales Discussion - Looks like Kinect's performance has made haters silent!

hehe is it really? maybe it is but according to an article posted on VG it may also be breaking 360's. So if it is responsible for breaking the console than the more they sell the worse they may be off.

Kicnect has just sold to Xbox users. There are no people around buying and xbox to play Kinect. There are no games that make people go and buy a kinect. What did you expected with the huge marketing behind it?

Sorry but 5 M sales is not that much. at. all.

Right, the Kinect has nothing to do with the 360 having its best year ever.

5m units sold is actually an amazing start. Just a matter of time before its 10 million units sold.

BOB,BOB, BOB.... My mom got one, my aunt, sister and non of them owned a xbox 360. thats not including others I was surprised got one. You are full of it if you think that it has not sold to new customers . MY sister works a wal-mart and I had to wait for when she knew there was a shipment to get a bundle for my cousin because they sold out in hours. not the stand alone, the bundles. Maybe thats just my area but most likely not. Actually the stand alones where easier to get after a while.

lolz. i wont make any new ones for a while. can i bump my kinect hitting 20 million every 2 million it sells?


no


dayum.

Looks like the 360 heads will have to do the bumpin'.

bumping every 5 million because they are big milestones I can see, bumping every 2 million is ridiculous overkill and if you do it you'll be moderated for spamming. 

See you every 5 then.



I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

If the Kinect was a success it would move a lot of hardware and the X360 would have outsold the Win during this holidays. But since that didnt happe, we can easily see the Kinect was mostly bough by people that already owned a X360

I dont think the Kinect has a chance to get 10million, it isnt nearly as big as the wii and that is a fact. Comparing Kinect sales with Wii sales is completely pathetic

(On a side note, im not hating i love to see Microsoft finally making a good move this generation even if it took them 3 years to realize copying Nintendo was the way to go)



Nintendo is the best videogames company ever!

I am not so sure about that, toastboy. Kinect's success seems to have increased the number of haters.

On top of that, the Wii is still the king of gaming.

No, PS360 is the king!!!

We are allowed to group them together by law.

YEP IT'S THE LAW!!!!!

HEHE, if you read the article it stated two people posted a complaint about launch xbox 360's breaking, not new ones and it was only two people. Hardly a reason to post a article but hey when you can bring up anything to do with RROD, why not. It's a sure way to get some hits over a joke of a article.

NO, NO and no. ONE they coudn't keep up with demand and wii sales in the beginning where not that hi either.

Two. there at 6 million, you don't think they will hit 10? REALLY!

ON a side note you totally are to imply that they won't hit 10 million. It is obvious they will.

Third: your sig. I love nintendo and they made my childhood rock when things where not so good. hope they bury the ps2 sales. We can hope.



Since this is a copy thread of the other one for GT5 I'll just use the same excuse 360 fans were using in the other thread so here I go....

 

"BU BU BUT ITZ THE HOLIDAYS!!! ITS UNFAIR!!"

"BU BU BUT TEH BUNDLES!!!!!!"

LOL!!!!



I still stand by my statement that Kinect will not sell in the long term. I always believed and stated that it would sell the first couple months, based primarilly on the novelty and the natural holiday boost. Also, the games are already not selling that well (udraw and its flagship game is selling better than most Kinect games).

The true test will be how it performs during the slow months this year, and I don't beleive it'll pass that test. Child of Eden and Star Wars will not be enough to keep Kinect sales going.

I have never seen people so passionate and defensive about a peripheral..

Really? You don't think the launch software is doing well?

Lets look at the software sales...

I think those are respectable numbers for hardware that came out 2 months ago and has a userbase of about 5 million.

 

Your uDraw comparison is ridiculous.

It only has 2 games on the market and they are only $30 (excluding the bundled game). So its not surprising that the games are performing better than some of the less popular Kinect games.

Ultimately, uDraw isn't any where close to the Kinect's success. Why even bother trying to compare them?

 

If Wii Fit can maintain strong sales with its library, then why can't Kinect do the same with its current library?
