Xbox 360 Sales Double Thanks to Launch of Kinect
Posted by James Newton
Call of Duty probably didn't hurt
We know that Kinect had a successful launch worldwide, but in the UK it made a major impact on hardware sales, doubling the Xbox 360's previous week figures and putting it top of the home console sales leaderboard.
Whilst the launch of much-anticipated shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops no doubt contributed to this sales increase, Xbox 360 comfortably outsold PlayStation 3, which also received the latest Call of Duty of course. A spokesperson confirmed to Eurogamer that:
360 doubled last week and it was already selling a lot. Wii and PS3 have been beaten by 360 consistently over the past few months.
Software sales were also good, with Kinect Sports scoring a top five place in the UK charts ahead of seven other Kinect titles.
