Saling The World: Kinect Sells Out at Amazon

Gamasutra's weekly column, "Saling The World", covers the top five sellers for every available platform in the United States, Japan, and Europe, providing an important update of sales patterns worldwide.

This week's charts, with data taken from November 4th, 2010, find Microsoft's hardware-bundled Kinect Adventures leading software sales in North America, with Kinect Sports and Dance Central also emerging as big sellers in the peripheral's debut week.

Data for "Saling The World" comes courtesy of the public sales information on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.co.jp, with sales split out for each platform and territory, and pre-orders disregarded. This results in a true sense of what games are selling worldwide on the real-time updated service, as follows:

Well its the best peripheral I've ever bought, and the games for it are fun as heck! So of course its selling like hot cakes.

lowcarb2538d ago

Well I disagree with you because you didn't thank Sony. Also Sony started video games and are the only company that deserves praise because there from Japan and sooooooooooo smart. If Kinect were fun then how come people are playing it and not on the internet?

yeracnivek712538d ago

...you nailed the typical Sony fanboy...that was funny. :D

To be fair, you have to do the same for Nintendo and XBOX fanboys though. :p

"Sony started video games"

*giggles*

Applegate2538d ago

And I disagree too because it hurts me to see people actually have fun with anything that isnt Sony related.

I cant believe people can enjoy videogames on something that isnt PlayStation.

YOUR-MUM2538d ago

You are joking about the Sony started video games thing ?

chilled2m2538d ago (Edited 2538d ago )

@ lol lowcarb, you win the comment of the year award!

Sadly, for some people, these kinds of comments are pretty much spot on.

@ Your-mum

It was satire.

Denethor_II2538d ago

Oh the bitterness is strong in this one.

SWORDF1SH2538d ago

And i disagree with you. MS are clearly the company that cares about us gamers. They don't extort us with pay to play online. They also have us gamers at heart with this new kinect where they use their studios and pump all their resources in chasing the casual crowd because they want all the market for themselves. Wii move out MS's way because the king of monopoly is here. PS3 and Wii don't deserve to be around. Buy an xbox because monopolisation is what us gamers want. One console market is the future. Let bend over and take it up the arse so MS can acheive this and then charge what ever they want because us gamers want that to.

For the record that was a joke. I'm actually impressed with Kinect but people calling out fanboys as if its just Sony fanboys, and vise versa, are just irrating pricks.

"For the record that was a joke. I'm actually impressed with Kinect but people calling out fanboys as if its just Sony fanboys, and vise versa, are just irrating pricks."

Honestly that sounds like a personal problem you need to deal with. You see I'm glad you find me irritating because it makes me want to type more stuff just to mess with your type (sensitive). Kind of like you little brats keep doing in every 360 related article where strangely I don't see you playing the role of captain hero in any of them! SO come on bring the insults which seem to be the only way you guys know how to counter. Maybe if I start attacking MS (because there the only money hungry evil company out there) you will agree with me more often lol pathetic. :o

SWORDF1SH2538d ago

Yes i'm very sensitive. I cried when said those nasty things.

Please don't say those nasty things again. Please.. PLEASEEEEEEEE!!!!11!

But yeah you have a point. You don't see me hardly on 360 related topics because I dont go on them much. I don't hide the fact that the PS3 is my console of choice. But i'm at the point where people get obsessed of what console they like so much that they start acting like a Troll, like yourself.

You, the sony fanboys and all the other xbots are the scum of any gaming forum.

Can't have a proper debate without fucking retards like you getting in your face. And it goes for the sony fanboys that cry about PS3 being the graphically superiour console and that every year is going to be the year of the playstation and going on about the rrod.

I don't care. I want all fanboys to disappear and go back 10 years when there was a lot more respect for each other.

thenickel2538d ago

I agree with you 100%. Every last one of these fanboys are annoying and this stuff needs to stop. What happened to the days of gaming and cheat codes? I'm tired of reading this crap from people like carb and the rest.

@carb: He is not attacking you from a fanboy perspective. Lighten up and stop with the immature attacking. The people that want to save this community on N4G need to stop joining these fights and report them as offensive.

No, they have limit hardware Kinect.

lowcarb2538d ago

"No, they have limit hardware Kinect."

What exactly are you trying to say lol? Of course there's limited hardware. What you think if PS3 sold out they could blink and more would appear?

Rayz3d6yW0lves2538d ago

Lowcarb, you're on fire today.
But don't you know, microsoft products cannot sell out unles they supplied only 3 of them. But move on the other hand, Move really sells out because Sony are gods

SWORDF1SH2538d ago (Edited 2538d ago )

you know exactly what he's refering to. the reports that major sites where given very limited stock of kinect to increase demand.

A popular tactic used by all 3 companys.

Might be true or not but please get your head out your ass

krisprolls2538d ago (Edited 2538d ago )

It's not sold out at all, unlike Move at launch.

There are tons of them available in shops near my home and everywhere.

And that's with MS seriously undershiping.

With a 500 million $ marketing budget, it looks like this fiasco will cost them a lot.

A lot more than their latest failure, Kin.

chilled2m2538d ago

Clearly you already got your advanced degree in business management. According to you, since there are "a ton of them available in shops near my home and everywhere" this means that Kinect will fail miserably.

Why hasn't Microsoft hired you yet? you clearly have such a firm understanding of the market.

PS360fanboy2538d ago

"It's not sold out at all, unlike Move at launch."

Ahahah! Hilarious...!

KingME2538d ago (Edited 2538d ago )

The reason they are not sold out where you live is because you live in a world where only Sony products are sold. If a Microsoft product was removed from a shelf it would mysteriously be still there.

Also in your world there is a huge population of "1".

Here take this, it's a ticket to the real world.

@Samsamurai - I could be wrong but is Kinect even out yet in Europe, I thought goes on sell on the 10th of Nov.

SuperStrokey11232538d ago

Its pretty easy to get right now in my city. Certainly not even close to sold out. Maybe this weekend it will though.
