According to Chart-Track, and reported by Eurogamer, Kinect is doing more than getting gamers off the couch; it's moving Xbox 360s off the shelves. The firm declared that sales of the console have surged in the UK since the motion sensor launched in Europe last week. Chart-Track offered no specific numbers, though Eurogamer reports that sales have doubled from the previous week.

Microsoft revealed yesterday that Kinect has sold 1 million units worldwide in its first 10 days of availability. The company noted further that it was "on track" to reach its goal of selling 5 million units by the end of the year.
