Microsoft has revealed that they managed to sell 8 million units in around 60 days after it was launched in the US market.

This is a pretty incredible number for a device that works with their Xbox 360 gaming console and provides controller-less gaming.

The company said:

We are enthusiastic about the consumer response to our holiday lineup of products, including the launch of Kinect. The 8 million units of Kinect sensors sold in just 60 days far exceeded our expectations. The pace of business spending, combined with strong consumer demand, led to another quarter of operating margin expansion and solid earnings per share growth.
