Kinect Sales Reach Ten Million Units, Kinect-enabled Hulu and Netflix Coming

Kinect for Xbox 360 continued its momentum in 2011, reaching 10 million Kinect sensors sold worldwide to date, according to Microsoft.

Not only were sensor sales an overwhelming success, but Kinect drove significant game sales with more than 10 million standalone Kinect games sold worldwide to date, the company added.

In a nod to the recent sales success of Kinect, Guinness World Records has officially named Kinect for Xbox 360 the fastest-selling consumer electronics device, which sold an average of 133,333 units per day for a total of eight million units in its first 60 days between November 4, 2010 and January 3, 2011. The record confirmation comes just after the latest release of the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition, which features dedicated sections to Kinect.

"The sales figures here speak for themselves," said Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor for Guinness World Records. "According to independent research, no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, which is an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector."

Microsoft also announced some new features for Kinect for Xbox 360. Beginning this spring, users will be able to use hand gestures and their voice to control Netflix on Xbox LIVE. Also this spring, Hulu Plus will join other partners on Xbox LIVE including ESPN, Netflix, Zune,, Sky, Canal+ and FOXTEL.

Also coming this year, Avatar Kinect is a new social entertainment experience on Xbox LIVE that brings user's avatar to life. Users will be able to control their avatar's movements and expressions.

New games coming this spring include the "Body and Brain Connection" (NAMCO BANDAI Games), which challenges players of all ages to exercise both their minds and bodies with fun, fast-paced mini-games ranging from math, logic, and memory to reflex and physical-orientation exercises using the full-motion capabilities of Kinect.

The "Michael Jackson The Experience" (Ubisoft) will feature songs from Michael Jackson's catalogue, as well as an array of his signature, dance moves, enabling players to be the star of the show, with no controllers or microphones required.

Other games inlcude "The Gunstringer" (Twisted Pixel Games) for Xbox LIVE Arcade, "Kung Fu Panda 2" (THQ), the "Carnival Games: Monkey See, Monkey Do (2K Play)" and "Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster" (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment).
