PlayStation Move Sales Pass 4 Million


Two months after it’s release Sony is reporting that sales of the PlayStation Move have reached over 4.1 million units worldwide. “The number not only shows clear success of the launch of the new motion sensing controller but also indicates positive momentum going in to the holiday season and to the year 2011.” states Sony. The 4.1 million figure does not include stand alone sales of the Navigation controller or the PlayStation Eye camera.

    They only Shipped 4.1 million units to retailers , they did not actually sell that many units & chances are units sold are either a little above or on par with the Kinect’s 2.5 million sold.

    According to the source of the article and several others, Sony says sold. Not shipped.

    Technically, the companies already bought the stock, so when the retailer purchases the devices, Sony technically sold it there.

    with that said, the stock on the devices at retail are limited, so even if the 4.1 million is the number sold to retailers and not to consumers, it’s still very impressive based on limited stock the retail stores hold

    Is this the same Sony that counted the controller the nunchuk attachment and the camera as all separate units when they tried to previously tally how many move units they sold.

    They did not also specify what exactly they count as a move considering its made up of multiple parts but of course told us whats not included.

    so Technically this number could be off , according to the source and numerous other articles.

    you think sony is beyond overhyping its products to drum up more developer support by showing them their platform is big and growing. cause they are not.

    What we need is sales figures for software since how many controllers are out there doesn’t tell us if publishers will invest on Move once six months have passed after launch.

    Does this take into account that I bought 2 Moves and 2 Navigation controller things, does that count as 4 or 2 or 1? If its 4, then those number aren’t as impressive, it’d be nice to see a “how many households” number for these kinds of things.

    Andy how would you want them to find out if people bought 1 or 2? Did you go tell them that your buying 2 move controllers and 2 nav controllers?

    That totally means success to them if they did sell out PS Moves with that number. Congrats to them!!!

    I wonder how the Natal has fared. Played with it at a friend’s house, and I gotta admit, that dancing game made for a lot of dopey fun. Great party title.
