PostSubject: Kinect will blow away iPad sales!   Fri Sep 17, 2010 12:01 pm

Wow, seriously? In a sales battle between two worthless things that nobody asked for, you can't get more pointless than a war between the iPad and Kinect. Nevertheless, Microsoft's corporate VP in charge of sunglasses, Kudo Tsunoda, has claimed that Kinect will annihilate the iPad when it launches.

"The pre-orders have been really strong," he boasts. "As far as what we're looking at for Holiday, this is going to be stuff that'll blow away any of the sales you've seen with iPad.

"The Xbox 360 is already selling better than the Wii and Sony right now. Kinect's really just going to boost that to a whole new level. People who love playing games like the same stuff. They like games that are fun; they like playing games where the more you play, the better you get. Those are things that we're doing really well with all of the Kinect titles."

The iPad sold a million units in a month after launch, with sales that outpaced those of even the original iPhone, and that was with its ridiculous price tag. Demand outweighed supply, and even now sales seem to be going well. Microsoft thinks Kinect can beat that? Good luck to 'em.

Kinect has an advantage with a cheaper price, but I can't help feeling Kudo will eat his words, especially since Kinect is constantly being marketed to a demographic that is not the Xbox 360's market, and possibly never will be.

Microsoft is trying to market it to the core audience (now) also but i believe that most people that are going to buy kinect dont even have 360's right know. I also agree with Kudo Tsunoda I think this thing will beast in sells.

I don't think it will sell well right from launch. But a year from launch it'll probably drop in price to like $120, or if we're lucky, $100. Then it will sell.

I'd be suprised if Kinect even reaches the 1 million mark by 2011, but you never know with casuals.

The Casual Gamers that once upon a time bought Nintendo Wii's are now gaming on their Iphone and Ipad's. MS knows this and want to bait that audience with Kinect. It's quite laughable really.

Well perhaps

My theory is that they've been so confident about their market dominance that they use ads solely to rub it in our faces, basically saying, "We could make an ad that shows Windows will turn your computer to liquid, and you people will still have to buy it."

Look at these and tell me I'm wrong.

I think Kinect will do good because people will see it as something "new"
