Microsoft Kinect Devices and Kinect Games Sales Top 10 Million Units Each

In Microsoft Corps quest to take over the gaming world, things are looking exceptionally good.  Yesterday, Microsoft Corp announced incredible new sales milestones for it’s Microsoft Kinnect motion controller for Xbox 360, as well as for Kinnect games.  Microsoft says they hit the ten million unit mark on the ultra popular Microsoft Kinnect controller that was launched just before Black Friday 2010 and the holiday buying season.  Not suprisingly, the Kinnect games sales have also hit the 10 million unit mark.  That’s some serious coinage from the already cash flush Microsoft.

I don’t know what the margins are on the Microsoft Kinect device or the Kinect games but clearly the sales figures are pretty impressive.  Even at an average sales price of $100 per device,  thats $1 Billion in sales in one quarter.  Add in Kinect games at an average price of $40 per game and that’s another $400 Million in sales, for a total $1.4 Billion in sales for the last 3 months and a bit, for a brand new product!

The Guinness Book of world records has actually crowned the Microsoft Kinect the fastest selling electronics device of all time.

At today’s prices Microsoft(MSFT) stock looks attractive without the Microsft Kinect sales.  Add in the Kinect sales and I think we have a winner.  Microsoft is currently trading at only 10.82 times earnings, and is down considerably from a 52 week high of $31.58.  Excuse me while I log into my online broker site.
