Fruit Ninja Kinect slices up over a million in sales

One of the staple "go-to" games in the Carter household is Fruit Ninja Kinect -- it seems as if I'm not alone, as Halfbrick's Phil Larsen has just announced that the game has topped one million downloads (that's not even including any of their iOS sales!). I can easily see how this would sell, given how simple it is to pick up and play -- it also speaks volumes of the [still] active Kinect fanbase, since the game 100% requires the device.

I couldn't be more excited for Halfbrick. In the few times I've talked to Phil Larsen, I thought he was incredibly cordial, Jetpack Joyride is one of the best games on iOS, and I thought Raskulls was one of the most fun downloadable games in recent memory. The Kinect may not have been a smashing hit with more dedicated gamers like myself, but I'll be damned if it isn't a good diversion every so often, thanks to developers like Halfbrick.

I refused to rearrange my living room to play Fruit Ninja in my girlfriend's tiny San Francisco flat, so after a few failed attempts at calibration I just jumped behind the sofa, causing my body to turn into a floating severed torso.  The result glitch in my Kinect setup causes another limb to come to life. How's that for enhanced male performance?
Halfbrick isn't kidding around with downloadable content for Fruit Ninja Kinect. It's now released the second content pack, "Space Capsule," which is available for 160 MS Points. The pack adds a new star chart backdrop, a "St...
In theory, translating Halfbrick's popular fruit-slicing mobile title to Kinect is a remarkable idea. It's hard not to buy into the idea of one-to-one karate chopping of juicy produce in your living room. Fortunately, in practice, Fruit Ninja Kinect works and plays just as well as you'd hope.
We sort of already knew about Fruit Ninja Kinect, thanks to Korea's ratings board, but this morning it became official with the confirmation of another Summer of Arcade. The game is pretty similar to the iDevice version, exc...
