Microsoft's motion controlling device without the controller looks to be off to a great start with several retailers selling out within its first week of launch.

"We've seen a tremendous amount of excitement and demand for [Kinect] and saw lines at our midnight openings around the country," said BestBuy's Chris Homeister. "We are currently sold out online, but we continue to work with Microsoft to obtain product shipments now and throughout the holiday season."

BestBuy as well as online retailers Amazon and GameStop are all sold out. Target also experienced "very strong pre-sales," selling out both the standalone device and the various Xbox 360/Kinect bundles.
