the astroturfing MS is doing.

MS is just telling you whats happening. They need more units to sell because they know for the first month those thing will fly off shelves like wiis

NecrumSlavery2851d ago

iPAD is crushing the christmas lists.

Motion2851d ago

No way.

Nothing will ever outsell crappy sweaters for Christmas.

drewboy7042851d ago

Lol true. Still want an android tablet though

Megaton2851d ago

I think socks and fruitcakes can give crappy sweaters a run for their money.

drewboy7042850d ago

Lol i like how this isnt a serious conversation, lets keep it this way. What does fruitcake taste like

Qui-Gon Jim2850d ago

One fruitcake was kept by a family, and was still edible after a hundred years.

MisterNiwa2850d ago

Legends are told that Fruitcakes take down a Rathalos with two hits.

uisce2850d ago

Fruitcake's awesome, excellent game food too. [Caution the resulting sugar-rush may cause giggles]

nix2850d ago

@Qui-Gon Jim: like Mac burgers, eh?

kaos_fish II2850d ago

Lay off the fruitcake - damn good food, great with milk or alcohol. Makes an excellent weapon too if siblings or kids won't shut the hell up either.

Kinect will most likely meet their expectations in terms of sales.

Spinal2850d ago

lool good username, you'll make some fanboy's heads explode with that one.

I own all consoles an a gaming rig PC. True gamers are just fan of games!

NnT32912850d ago

@spinalc0rd: True, I follow my favorite franchises, not the systems. I love GTA, If GTA V were a Wii exclusive I would happily buy me a Wii.

Spinal2850d ago

That makes two of us :)

I don't know why anyone would stick to one console out of some foolish fanboy pride.

WhitePolish2850d ago

bubble up
for your username

I noticed that they didn't say how many were actually all accounted for. This is a number they should already know. They know how many they made and if they are already spoken for then why not release the numbers. why not come out and say Kinect already sold 1.5 million(or whatever the # maybe)

Hopefully they are able to ship enough to meet demand.

R_aVe_N2851d ago (Edited 2851d ago )

Wrong the best selling product will be CoD: Black Ops lol it is a product you know 8)

drewboy7042851d ago

It'll be the top two selling products 1 on 360 and 2 on ps3

TroyAndAbed2851d ago (Edited 2851d ago )

The best selling products this holiday:

Toilet Paper
Paper Towels

Kinect doesn't have a prayer against milk!

Edit: I don't know. People are becoming less traditional in favor of convenience.

And to them I say,


Motion2851d ago

Don't forget pine trees.

Bass_fisherman2850d ago (Edited 2850d ago )

Youre forgetting that in Portugal people eat Norwegian cod (the fish not the game lol) as a main dish.And fish is way more expensive than meat but ppl still prefer it.

Fish >>> Meat

TroyAndAbed2851d ago

Honestly, I'm hoping people try both Kinect and Move before deciding.

I've made $150 mistakes before. I'd hate for that to happen to someone else.

DelbertGrady2850d ago

I've tried Move and it's great, and I'm also interested in trying out Kinect. Not because I'm getting either one anytime soon but because I like trying out new gadgets :)

In any case it's more likely that you go with the Move if you already own a PS3 and Kinect if you already own a 360. I'm still waiting for both to show some games that grab my interest.
