Kinect hasn’t even been out for more than a few days now, but word is that it’s selling out at retailers across this great land of ours. GameStop said yesterday that it’s having a heck of a time trying to keep Kinect in stock, with an executive vice-president saying that demand may well equal that of the Wii during that system’s launch.

The exact words of Tony Bartel were:

I think you are going to have the exact same thing with new controllers and with the Kinect Bundle that goes out. I think you are going to have consumers following the UPS truck to our stores to pick up that product as soon as they can find it.

To be fair to the other big motion controller, GameStop said that they expect both the Kinect and Move to be pretty darn successful.

Dance Central could be the big, breakout success, as a quick search on YouTube will verify.
