Steve Balmer proudly boasted that Microsoft has sold over 8 million Kinect sensors at their CES press conference night before last. That's 8 million in 60 days. The aftermath of that is that Kinect is going to be hard to find for the next couple of months.
Jose Pinero, Microsoft Senior Director of PR for Entertainment Services, told Destructoid that they're going to be playing Kinect catch up in early 2011 to meet demand.
"There was so much demand that we had to pull some production from January and February, so I think we're going to be hard-pressed to be able to fulfill demand."
"A lot of retailers will be out of stock, or will have challenges making sure that their shelves are filled," Pinero continued. "I don't think we'll be able to fulfill the demand in January and February. It's a nice problem to have."
