Kinect hits 10 million sold

Microsoft announced that Kinect has hit 10 million units sold. Despite the dearth of games to play, this makes it the fastest-selling consumer electronics device ever.

Kinect will also add support for HuluPlus and Netflix in the near future, allowing users to gesture at their televisions to navigate menus, pause, rewind, etc.

  1. I have a whole list of Stuff I Don’t Want and “Standing Up To Play Console Games” is near the top.

  2. Once the PC SDK stuff really gets rolling, hopefully there will be a standalone version sold, not just the $150 bundle version.

  3. Who has the living room space to play this thing? Even if I did, I’d go nowhere near it.

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads.
