Entertainment & Devices itself increased its revenue a staggering 55 percent in comparative year-over-year fiscal Q2 growth, pulling in $3.6 billion of the mega corporation's $19.95 billion total revenue for the quarter. "We are enthusiastic about the consumer response to our holiday lineup of products, including the launch of Kinect," said Microsoft CFO Peter Klein. "The 8 million units of Kinect sensors sold in just 60 days far exceeded our expectations." The company added that Kinect's popularity had a trickle-down effect, boosting sales of Xbox 360 consoles and games, as well as Xbox Live subscriptions.
Any impact on revenue from the launch of Windows Phone 7, however, went unmentioned.
