With less than a month to go before the launch of its motion sensor gaming platform, Kinect, and with pre-orders already sold-out at the likes of Amazon, Game and Play, Microsoft has announced that there will be more Kinects available on day one than for any other Xbox launch.
A Microsoft spokesperson told MCV:
"Over the course of just three weeks in November, we’re launching across every market where Xbox 360 is sold and will have more units of Kinect available than any other Xbox launch.
"Pre-orders have demonstrated that there is exceptional consumer excitement and demand for Kinect and we will continue to work hard to ensure that Kinect for Xbox 360 is available for the Christmas season".
"We are excited about the launch of Kinect for Xbox 360 in the UK and are looking forward to transforming entertainment experiences in homes across the world".
In 2005, Microsoft shifted 70,000 Xbox 360s in its opening weekend. If the Kinect demand proves accurate, there could be a lot of people jumping around in their living rooms come 10 November.
