Kinect sells 2.4m in Q3 of Microsoft's fiscal year

Kinect seems to be a hit. In the past three months 2.4 million units have been sold, bringing the total above 10 million. This may yet prove that the hands-free (or is it hands on?) gaming device is more than just a fad, unlike poor R.O.B., who is nothing more than a collector's item. Although Kinect's launch titles left something to be desired for more avid gamers (Kinectimals anyone?) new and innovative titles such as Twisted Pixel's The Gunstringer are sure to expand the possibilities of what it can do.
