Microsoft called 2010 the biggest year ever in Xbox history. As we noted before, the Kinect has been an effective rejuvenator of the Xbox 360 brand. More than 50 million Xbox consoles have been sold around the world.
Microsoft had estimated that it would sell 5 million Kinects last year. It exploded that tally, showing strong global demand for its natural user interface efforts.
In other news, there are now 30 million members of Xbox live. A new member joins every two seconds. If you are counting, 60 days from the launch of Kinect was the 2nd of January."
