Today's Reacharound concerns the soon-to-be-released Microsoft Kinect. Specifically, reports that Microsoft is predicting sales of five million Kinect units this holiday. My gut says that's a reasonable number, but user Vesuvian Ast3r1x had a personal experience that he thinks indicates that Microsoft is set to own this holiday season:
In my personal experience it will be a hit. ONE major reason is this: My mother who is not the most technologically savvy person in the world came to me one day last week and asked ME what I thought about the Kinect. Now this a person who doesn't always know what combination of buttons brings up the cable guide, so yeah.
Love or hate Kinect, Vesuvian Ast3r1x makes a compelling point. I, too, have had more than one conversation with non-tech-oriented friends and relatives that started, "So, tell me about this Kinect thing..." How about you guys?
