Microsoft says 10 million Kinects sold, new Guinness record

Microsoft today said it has now sold 10 million Kinect sensors since its November launch, plus more than 10 million standalone Kinect games.

That’s at least $2 billion in revenue for the Xbox group, which perhaps justifies the outrageous Cirque du Soleil launch event held for Kinect last summer in Los Angeles.

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the company said it’s also getting a spot in the new Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition.

Kinect is listed as the fastest-selling consumer electronics device, based on the pace of sales during its first three months on the market. From Nov. 4 to Jan. 3, the device sold an average of 133,333 units per day.
