Guinness World Records has officially declared Microsoft’s Kinect motion gaming controller for Xbox 360 as the Fastest-Selling Consumer Electronics Device. The revolutionary accessory sold around 133,000 units per day for a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days on sale from 4 November 2010 to 3 January 2011. These sales figures outstrip both the iPhone and the iPad for the equivalent periods after launch.
Gaz Deaves, Editor of Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition, said:
“The sales figures here speak for themselves,” said Gaz Deaves, Editor of Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition “We can confirm that no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector.”
The new record will be included in the next publication of Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition.
