Well on the way to the Christmas gaming top-spot, Microsoft have confirmed that their Xbox 360 Kinect motion-sensing contoller has now sold over 2.5 million units.

That’s in a mere 26 days.

“We are thrilled about the consumer response to Kinect, and are working hard with our retail and manufacturing partners to expedite production and shipments of Kinect to restock shelves as fast as possible to keep up with demand”, said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft.

“With sales already exceeding two and a half million units in just 26 days, we are on pace to reach our forecast of 5 million units sold to consumers this Christmas”.

With the Gears of War and Star Wars franchises touching down next year with Kinect support you can be sure those figures will keep rising too.

Pick up a Kinect with the Kinect Adventures game for £129.99, or with an Xbox 360 Slim 4GB edition for £249.99
