Microsoft Kinect has sold 10 million units, enough to officially set a world's record with the Guinness folks who keep track of astonishing achievements.

"Guinness World Records, the global authority on record breaking, today confirm that the Kinect for the Xbox 360 is the Fastest-Selling Consumer Electronics Devices. The hardware, that allows controller-free gaming, sold through an average of 133,333 units per day, for a total of 8 million units in its first 60 days on sale from 4 November 2010 to 3 January 2011," revealed Gaz Deaves, editor of Guinness World Records 2011.

Deaves add, "The sales figures here speak for themselves. We can confirm that no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector."

The new record will be included in the next Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition, which recognises record breaking achievement in the world of videogames.
