So we ran a story this morning based on the fact that Microsoft were claiming 3 million Kinect sales in four weeks. Turns out they might have been a little quick off the mark on that one. The real, final number? Only a piddling 2.5 million.
Of course, that's still an incredible result. According to the Microsoft rep who called us frantically after the error, they're still on track for 5 million sales before the end of the year and, at the moment, they're managing to push 100,000 units a day.
The bad news is, of course, that Microsoft can't count. The good news? Kinect (along with Reach and Black Ops) has helped propel Microsoft's games division to 38% year on year growth. According to the Microsoft rep, 2010 is the game division's biggest year ever.
