A recent article published by Gamasutra states not only that Xbox is again leading console sales by selling almost 300.000 units, but also that Microsoft has stated the amount of Kinect games will triple by the end of the year!

Triple the amount of Kinect games

So Microsoft is saying that by the end of this year the amount of Kinect games will have tripled. They said:

In anticipation of another record year in 2011, Microsoft announced the size of the Kinect games portfolio will triple by the end of the year.

That’s a pretty bold statement because as we speak we at 123Kinect.com have a grand total of 75 Kinect games in our database! Some of those are rumored and some are still not released. But if we take the amount of games that are currently released we’ll count 27, so if we triple that there will be 81 Kinect games out by the end of 2011!

Surprises at the E3

So there are 75 Kinect games that we currently know off and there will be at least 81 out by the end of 2011. That means we’re probably going to be in for a few exciting Kinect related surprises at the coming E3!

E3 is coming up in a few weeks and I really can’t wait for it! Bring on the Kinect games!
