I'm both a little surprised and disappointed by this new bit of news.
It's come to light that, according to recent sales figures, the Kinect for the Xbox 360 has sold more units than the Nintendo Game Cube. As a long time supporter of Nintendo, their products, and IP, I can't help but feel a bit disturbed by this event. The fact that more people care about a gimmicky peripheral than a core gaming console simply bugs me.
Honestly I shouldn't be so surprised, after all Nintendo did rake in money by banking on a gimmicky and unreliable control scheme with the Wii. However, it doesn't change that I'm not a fan of Microsoft, their products, and the CoD schlock that so many people (especially 360 owners) clamour for every year.
I guess I'm just a bit disgruntled that a peripheral, that most owners get little use out of, has out sold a last gen console that gave me untold hours of enjoyment.
