Kinect Sales in Japan are Dismal

Microsoft’s Kinect motion controller might be selling like gangbusters everywhere else, but in Japan, the camera is selling poorly.  According to the most recent figures, the Kinect has sold only 114,000 units through November 13th, 2011 says Andria Sang in a “Year One Progress Report“.

Andria Sang’s statistics come from the latest issue of Famitsu Xbox 360 and provided the following breakdown over the months since launch.

Kinect Sales in Japan Since Launch

  • November 2010: 27,800
  • December 2010: 43,200
  • January 2011: 14,800
  • February 2011: 5,040
  • March 2011: 3,160
  • April 2011: 2,100
