PlayStation Move Sells 1.5M Across Europe
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Andrew House, head of Sony Computer Entertainment in Europe stated that the company’s PlayStation Move peripheral has sold over a million units since it’s debut in the region.
Move has had “very significant sales in the first month since launch, somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe,” House said. “The initial sales response has been so far in excess of our initial plan that we’ll probably be looking at accelerating production.”
House also told Bloomberg that Sony expects a “very, very strong” Christmas holiday season this year in Europe and anticipates PS3 sales to exceed the company’s previous sales target of 15 million for the fiscal year due to “strong demand” in Europe and North America.
