Kinect: 1 million served in first ten days

It's funny to think back to even a couple of months ago when the majority of us were still skeptical as to whether or not Kinect would pay off for Microsoft. Considering how the motion-control device reportedly contains $56 worth of parts -- and sales surpassed 1 million in its first ten days -- it's kind of humorous.

Well, it was to me anyway, you jerks. It'll be interesting to see how Kinect sales spike as we inch closer to the holiday season, and also how well the PlayStation Move performs in comparison. If nothing else, this strong start should offer a glimmer of hope, as a larger user base will lead to more developer support.

Bring the games, guys. The ones we haven't played before on other systems.
