In a typical “Counting your eggs before they are hatched” situation, Microsoft is predicting that they will sell over 3 Million Kinect accessories this holiday season. While I’ve always liked the add on’s that system makers come out with (I’ve bought several on release: Sega CD, Sega 32X, Sega Power Converter… Mostly Sega!), I’ve never seen an add on sell so quickly. We’ll see, though.
We’ve also done our own research. We believe this will be the biggest launch in our history, for Xbox. We will sell more Kinect sensors than we did [systems] at Xbox 360 launch.
