Microsoft announced it plans to sell at least three million Kinect devices before the year is over:
"Our key indicators are feedback from retailers - I think you'd be surprised at how sophisticated they are, and they really have the pulse of the market. They're looking at preorders, they're talking to customers," Microsoft mouthpiece Aaron Greenberg told Gamasutra at the Tokyo Game Show.
"We've also done our own research. We believe this will be the biggest launch in our history, for Xbox. We will sell more Kinect sensors than we did [systems] at Xbox 360 launch.
"Our estimates that we will sell in excess of three million units this holiday."
