Kinect exceeds Japanese expectations with 26,000 sales
Plus Xbox 360 sees a gentle increase
Microsoft's motion camera Kinect has sold 26,000 units in its first few days of Japanese availability.
Initial reports suggested the device was struggling in that territory, traditionally a challenging one for Microsoft, although sales were proportional to the Xbox 360 install base.
Figures from Media Create now suggest 26,000 sales, with Xbox 360 sales rising to 7083 for the week.
This puts the motion controller's sales above those of individual DS SKUs, but marginally behind the Wii and PS3 and in the tall shadow of PSP's 96,601 sales.
By comparison, Kinect sold over one million in its first 10 days of release in the West.
