GameStop VP: Kinect Will Outsell Move This Christmas

GameStop's senior VP of marketing Bob McKenzie revealed that Kinect hardware sales has surpassed all pre-launch expectations and that Kinect is on its way to outsell Sony's Move this Christmas.

"I'd say right now Microsoft's Kinect is looking to be the winner of the two for us," he said. "We're very happy with the sell-through over the weekend. It has met our expectations and actually exceeded our initial forecasts."

"I do have them both, obviously, and the Move Sports bundle is a great option," he added, "but I knew for my family - with an eight-year-old daughter and ten-year-old boy - that Kinect was really going to be the thing that was more geared towards my household."

Official Kinect sales figures are not out yet, but Sony has announced that it managed to sell 1.5 million Move units in Europe and another 1 million units in the U.S.

The loan seem to be useful for guys, which would like to organize their business. By the way, it is very comfortable to receive a consolidation loan.

XBOX 360 THE BEST EVER!!!!!!

I just wanna say thanks M.S. for putting out not just a system that beats JAPSTATION in every game review, When games are made for both systems, But now instead of copy cat like CRAPSTATION did with the WI but for coming out with new tech that leapfrogs all systems lol Americans Started video games and in the end we will always be the best sorry CRAPSTATION!!! LOL last post lol idiots!

Ignorance Is Bliss

There are always ignorant comments coming from fanboys of one console or the other...
1stly, PS2 actually had the idea before Wii. (fairly, Nintendo before them had a similar motion controler idea)

2ndly, Microsoft are all about there pockets, I mean seriously, $94 profit on every Kinect sold...they changed from the hardware driven Kinect to the Software driven because they said it would be more expensive...meaning they would make less than $94 profit for those who didn't catch on.

3rdly, do research before you open your uneducated mouth about unreasonabley calling the PS3 crapstation. Instead of trying to be a smartass and badmouth companies how about you put yourself through school and learn a little self-control.
I've played on both systems and prefferably i do prefer the Move because it's more comfortable having a controller in my hands while playing. But the Kinect is also pretty awesome...just over priced for what you're getting.

4thly, do some research on the PS3's capabilities with the PSP to find out it's true innovative properties in comparison to a company that only cares about their pockets. Also look at what the PS3 comes with out of the box as well as it's graphics capabilities compared to the XBOX. Like i said, educate yourself young padawone.

5thly, find something more constructive to do than just being an annoying child.

By the way, I have both systems.

I think it's pretty simple...

Sony's move looks just like the Wii...but with a ridicously looking stupid bubble thing on top. Kinect is something totally different so I'm not really sure it's fair to even compare the two. Again it's like what was Sony thinking...?

who gives a shit what it

who gives a shit what it looks like? If it works, that's all that matters. are you that self conscious that you're worried about someone making fun of you and your "ugly" controller sittin' in your living room?

Derp

It'll sell more because there are more XBawks consoles in American homes than there are PS3's, not because one is better than the other...they both suck and are retarded ideas.

duh x2

Not hard to figure out eh? How about this then, each xbox owner will only buy 1 kinect for his or her household while a single ps3 owner will likely purchase a few (2 to 4) move controllers.

So are there 2 times more xbox 360 consoles in america than ps3's? (2 times is the worst case scenario, could go with 3 as an 'average' value)

Not so duh

Only if the probability of buying A kinect or move is equal.If the move is bought by 25% of PS3 owners, and kinect by 25% of xbox owners, then yeah kinect would sell more and your assumption would be correct.

well see

most store dont have move anymore since along time..
Not talking about the bundle.

and kinect you can find it everywhere.

anyway, both need good game to be release first and that is not before next years.

First post = MORON LOL

I bought xbox 360 and ps3 well When I noticed that every game version Madden,Red dead revolver, Grand theft auto, was better on XBOX 360 I sold my CRAPSTATION!!!! Now kinetic comes out and Blows CRAPSTATION Away with new tech I am sure glad I sold it!! LOL
