Microsoft's motion control device seems to be selling like hotcakes since its release on November 4. The Kinect has since sold an impressive one million units worldwide in a matter of ten days according to a Reuters report.

"It's a strong start," said Don Mattrick, head of Microsoft's game unit, in a telephone interview on Monday. "Consumers are loving it."

The Kinect retails at $150 for a standalone unit while the Xbox 360 bundle retails at $300. While early sales are high, it is likely that strong pre-orders for the device caused a spike in sales. Microsoft, however, are hoping that sales remain strong throughout the holiday season.

Microsoft initially predicted sales of three million this quarter but increased expectations to five million.
