Microsoft has looked ahead to Christmas and has decided it will see 5 million Kinect units instead of the previously forecasted 3 million.

According to Bloomberg's Dina Bass, who broke the news on Twitter, Microsoft's Don Mattrick said the launch of the peripheral and the projected 5 million in sales would "make Kinect the biggest Xbox product launch ever in terms of sales".

Back in September, Aaron Greeberg said the firm expected to sell 3 million units of the new tech. Guess it expects 2 million more, now.

Kinect is out in the US tomorrow, and Europe on November 10.

Thanks, Techflash.
