Microsoft confirms day one allocations all accounted for, but promises more stock soon; Kinect according to Xbox’s general manager for UK & Ireland Neil Thompson: 'will be the best selling Xmas [Christmas] product'.
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
iPAD is crushing the christmas lists.
No way. Nothing will ever outsell crappy sweaters for Christmas.
Lol true. Still want an android tablet though
I think socks and fruitcakes can give crappy sweaters a run for their money.
Lol i like how this isnt a serious conversation, lets keep it this way. What does fruitcake taste like
One fruitcake was kept by a family, and was still edible after a hundred years.
Legends are told that Fruitcakes take down a Rathalos with two hits.
Fruitcake's awesome, excellent game food too. [Caution the resulting sugar-rush may cause giggles]
@Qui-Gon Jim: like Mac burgers, eh?
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.
to beat iPad and iPhone this Christmas.
for your username
Kinect will most likely meet their expectations in terms of sales.
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!
@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.
That makes two of us :) I don't know why anyone would stick to one console out of some foolish fanboy pride.
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.
Wrong the best selling product will be CoD: Black Ops lol it is a product you know 8)
It'll be the top two selling products 1 on 360 and 2 on ps3
The best selling products this holiday: Milk Eggs Ham Turkey Chicken Cereal Coffee 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, "YOU'VE RUINED CHRISTMAS!!!"
Don't forget pine trees.
and not jews
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
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.
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.
Who saw the Kinect on Ellen video and thought that was the most scripted thing ever! As sad as it sounds, a product can be 60% functional and still sell in America.
A product can be 0% functional and sell in America! Example: The Pet Rock
Bubble up, excellent point!!
lol omg you went there thanks for the laugh!
Does everything it promises But will kinect?
I missed it. What was it? I don't remember anything other than vague claims that it will be great because somebody said so.
No its Black Ops. Hardware? Probably
Then Microsoft will release their own, or they'll probably have a feature for Kinect where gamers can use Wii-motes or PS Moves. (I'm not praising it, I'm just saying "things happen").
will be the best selling product... i name it
will be Cataclysmic. =)
I'll have to get that second move controler. ;)
I dunno about you ppl but i dont get presents for christmas these lasts years cause of the financial crisis that is being going on at and its getting worse every day.(at least in Europe i say) Now if that much people are really looking forward to buy an periphal for a console that can only happen in the states cause anywhere else most people dont spend their hard earned money on things like this.
Kinect is going to be the IT gift to get this year. I havent seen anything else being hyped so much. Its going to sell well. I can honestly say that I aint buying on this year and not one on my bud list is even remotely interested in one, but I am over 21 like those on my bud list and are not the target audience for kinect this year. (this is NOT a knock and if you take it as such you are just wrong, start reading comments as glass of water 1/2 filled not 1/2 emptied)
For those families that can afford it.. the iPad is going to destroy the consoles, followed by blu-ray players and LED HDTV's.. For those families that can't afford it (a lot of unemployed since last Christmas) well, I see Walmart, the Dollar General and Dollar Tree are going to have brisk sales.
It will be the most returned gift
you won't get much for it from Gamestop
Ipad is every kid number one list for XMas I don't see Kinect on any kids Xmas list.
Has anybody else notice that when MS talks bout kenect its bout sales instead of how well tha product actually functions?? ... just thought I'd point that out
Will it sell this holiday times? More than likely. Will it be the best selling? iPad is currently holding that king point.
No GT5 will be.
ITLL BE GT5 OFCOURSE
It will be a fight between Kinect, Kinect/360 bundles, iPad, some tickle me elmo kinda doll, or one of the 50 hot cell phones releasing. Wii, PS3, GT5, and Move wont even make the top 50 list.
You deluded person... I personally think all platforms will do well, variety is the spice of life.. !
Your a fanboy with 5 bubbles somehow, you think anyone will listen to you? GT5 wont make top 50 list? Are you willing to BET THAT?
Nintendo will whoop it's butt as usual. :)
Funniest thing I heard all day haha
