[Update] Microsoft reports 2.5 million units of Kinect sold

The day Microsoft started selling their Kinect for the XBox 360, it was already in competition with Nintendo's Wii, and Sony's PlayStation Move. While Nintendo had it's share of success with it's Wii they are still selling and not a dollar is cut by Nintendo for the Wii. Sony, on the other hand, reported they have sold 2.5 million units of the PlayStation Move, which is basically a direct competition they have put head to head with Nintendo's Wii (minus the console). With the XBox on their shoulders, Microsoft is not keen on stopping their development with it. Hence, Kinect which removes the need of those controllers all together.

When it started selling it was selling like hotcakes as if tomorrow is the end. On just 25 days of it's global availability, that is the mark that the Kinect have hit belittling that of Sony's PlayStation Move's 2.5 million units sold in a couple of months.

Microsoft have said that they are keen on reaching the 3 million unit mark. On that pace? They can easily reach that before the year ends.

Update: Sony just made a statement with regards of their PlayStation Move which, as what they have said, have shipped 4.1 million units. This number is the total number of those wands that have actually made out from their factories on their way to retailers.
