According to an AFP report, Microsoft has sold over eight million Kinect for Xbox 360 consoles in just 60 days, said company CEO Steve Ballmer during his Consumer Electronics Show 2011 (CES) keynote presentation.

Furthermore noted Ballmer, over 50 million Xbox 360 consoles have also now been sold globally. "This has been the biggest holiday and the biggest year ever for Xbox," Ballmer said.

According to Ballmer, the Xbox is fast becoming the hub of the living room. "It is your gaming system, but it's your movie, it's your TV experience, it's a TV show, and it's your sporting event," he said.
