Company confirms entire first day stock accounted for

The first day’s stock is all gone, but Microsoft says Kinect won’t be in short supply too much in the following weeks.

Speaking to MCV this week Xbox’s GM for UK & Ireland Neil Thompson said a 'healthy’ amount of Kinect stock is heading to the UK for week one.

Consistent supplies thereafter mean the firm will have sold 'hundreds and hundreds of thousands’ of the device by year’s end.

“In terms of allocation I can’t meet the demand every single retailer has of me for day one,” he said. “But I do think we have what I would call a healthy launch volume for week one.

“And more importantly, as we go through the Christmas season as a whole I feel very confident that all retailers will enjoy the sales opportunity that Kinect will bring.
