Microsoft Kinect's spokesman Kudo Tsunoda said that the device is on track to sell millions this holiday thanks to its ability to enable deep gameplay and attract a wide audience, in a new interview from the Tokyo Game Show floor. "The preorders have been really strong. As far as what we're looking at for Holiday, this is going to be stuff that'll "blow away" any of the sales you've seen with iPad," says Tsunoda, when asked what he though about the device's chances of success.

"The Xbox 360 is already selling better than the Wii and Sony right now. Kinect's really just going to boost that to a whole new level."

Apple's device sold 1 million units in its first 28 days on sale and went on to sell 3 million in three months.

"It really does work in all types of lighting conditions. Dark -- it doesn't matter if you've dim lights in the house, that stuff's all going to work. The main thing is with the games that're very physical, but there are games which don't need a lot of space," he says.
