In what amounts to some very positive news for Sony, it appears sales of the PlayStation Move are on the way up with some major North American retailers.
How is something that is not out yet selling very well? The pre-order might be high, but so far Move has sold nothing as its not out yet.
Yea, the title should have been something like, "Move pre-orders on the rise" But yea watevs, this ill get approved regardless. Btw, I don't know why you have 2 disagrees. Pre-orders don't equal sales. @Skv- Thx for posting the link. I've never seen those before XD @TOO PAWNED- Yea, Sorcery and Heroes on the Move are the only Move games I'm interested in right now, but I'll get Move in late 2011 when the price drops a little.
Personally ill wait for that Sorcery game. That game seemed like build up around Move, rest of casual games and move add ons (for Socom 4) are not for me. But i cant WAIT to play Sorcery and Heros on the MOVE. Day 1 when one of those gets released.
The one I'm most looking forward to with Move is RE5. I held off on buying it or playing it because the tank controls and more of just aim and shoot on a controller weren't enough for me to spend all the cash. Now that it has Move controls, it reminds me of RE4 and has me excited for it all over again. There are other games I want for Move, but that's my main one. If I go and grab a set on Day 1, I'll probably be picking up more than one game, especially if it's those two.
good article until this : 'However, no word was mentioned of an increase in sales for Kinect'. i guess the top ten on amazon.com isnt worth crowing about unless your in the toysrus chart-the benchmark of success along side barbie and action man.desperate much? i think the standards of journalism are slipping at examiner.com.they let a fanboy write this one.he managed to turn a perfectly good sales analysis turn to flamebait in his last sentence. D'oH
Move's Precision may make first person shooters played with a standard controller a thing of the past. I really want to test it out though before I buy cause Socom and Heavy Rain are pretty good choices for the control scheme though I'm alittle sceptical with Socom for some reason. Really need a hands on before I'm convinced but I'm getting there.
"Natal outselling Move" And now there's this article. >_<
"Yea, Sorcery and Heroes on the Move are the only Move games I'm interested in right now, but I'll get Move in late 2011 when the price drops a little." You are assuming Move will be unsuccessful hence the price will drop. If the Move is successful, they will not drop the price. Why discount something if it is selling?
"Very well" is not enough in the neigbourhood of the Best Sellers.
OK, people that are complaining about the "sales" of something that is not in stores, this is the same as the the other article about kinect "selling", so if both devices are not even out yet, but there was an APPROVED article talking about "sales" already, no-1 needs to complain about...
lol I was wondering that too. This must be news from the future.. kinda like the Move ad from K.B. http://www.joystiq.com/2010... xD I'll just pick it up next year when the price drops a bit.. or I might just break down on launch day and go buy it xD
This will forever be a gaming classic. At least for those who don't get butthurt over it.
ah yes add the Pew Pew Pew to the Giant Enemy Crab!! 4D and Massive Damage! Hopefully KB can come up with about 10 more to make up for the ridiculously embarrassing commments that have streamed out of Sony this whole gen.. funny stuff, of course unless you are butthurt over it. OnTopic: Move is a joke and Examiner is pure sh*t. Hallmark is spot on..
you i realized something. people said the move wont see because people have a Wii well what about those people with only a ps3, and was considering picking up a Wii. like was thinking of getting a Wii but with the move coming, its changed my mind. but then again without the Wii id miss out on mario
My kids do not like the same kind of game I play. I thought about the Wii for them. Now my kids are excited about the casulas coming out for the Move.
im the same way to i wanted a wii for the longest time and i never got one and i was going to get it before they showed it and then BAM(there it is) PS Move as soon as i seen that,i decided not to get a wii,I'm going to get the move bungle in sept. :P for get about the wii.I'm not getting a wii just cause of mario lol(not hating on Mario i love the guy but i have played Mario from the nes days,some thing new please :D)
People actually buying said products before actual release at retailer cost, and then being notified once the products reach retailers. I for one am one such customer (Sort of like a rain check) if you will.
even hard cold facts are blur in N4G air, by the gods we need kratos to kick some a$s around here
Ha Ha. You get disagrees and bubbled down for stating the truth. Opps, I forgot...this is N4G.COM and stating the truth even if it takes a jab at Sony in any negative fashion will get you disagrees LOL
Lol why is T9X69 getting disagrees...pre-orders=/=sales . Those people can easily cancel pre-order if they want to so PS Move isn't "selling" well just yet. It's just got high pre-orders. At least change the article title.
It's not out yet, how can it sell well?? Pre-orders must be high but as of right now a single one haven't been sold. So selling 0 is selling well?? wow.
...I don't expect the Move price to drop. So I'm pre-ordering the Move and will be an early adopter of the device. That being said I'm still on the fence about it BUT having a bundle with the eye is what's pushing me over right now. Likewise the prospective of playing Socom 4 and other traditional games with it is intriguing. I think it also helps that no one in my home is interested in or old enough to ask for a Wii so the Move will be my family's motion control gaming device.
preorder = sale. don't be pedantic.
...Preorder does mean sale because even if you preorder through Amazon they've place an order for that product. Someone has paid for the product prior to your purchase. I don't know why I didn't see it this way a year ago...oh well.
At this rate, it could even outsell the PSP! Sony should feel very accomplished. :)
I've got my pre-order started at already. I'm just going to pay it off $20 bucks a week at GameStop.
You're a good boy.
Yup. I know. And you have the best avatar on the site sir.
*cough* I beg to differ. My avatar is pretty fucking awesome.
Selling well eh? it's already out? smh
A pre-order does not equate to a sale. Not with any stretch of the imagination. People cancel pre-orders all the time.
Sorry but this is beyond lame and fake. Blue Dragon is ranked higher wheres that article? Toysrus is one shop not retailer(s) so remove the S.
Yet when Kinect had a similar article... "When Kinect releases so many haters will be silenced. People obviously can't see the decrease in Wii sales, people obviously want something different now and its the perfect time for MS to strike. Kinect will be huge there's no doubt in that." Yes, folks... This guy wrote that. FYI, Omega. Toys R' Us is a retailer. They have more than one shop.
This is N4G. Members approve the news they want to hear.
Its all user submitted/approved BS.
Good for Sony. Move seems to have lot of support from hardcore games such as Killzone 3, Socom 4 and Gran Turismo 5.
mang i was like wtf... when did MOVE came out...
No one buys games at Toys R US ROFL!!! Maybe if this is amazon I would be impressed.
Pre orderd 2 moves and 2 whatever those other controllers are call, who's names I can't remember now.
"In what amounts to some very positive news for Sony, it appears sales of the PlayStation Move are on the way up with some major North American retailers." This article is so full of complete fail. Whoever approved this article should have their approval license revoked. What's next, "Since Microsoft and Sony's merger last year, the sales of the MicroStation have reached the 20 million mark."??? Complete crap and I just wasted two seconds of my life reading that that I'll never get back. Edit: Hey, you, Mr. Disagree Guy! You must enjoy misleading titles that were obviously not edited by those who approved it. It's their job to edit the material. That's what the "Report" feature is for when the article is pending, among other things.
Weird thing is that Move is not even out yet. Pre order Socom 4 + Move, nuff said.
You can't forget Killzone 3+Move+3D
That's the next year. This year: Socom 4, RUSE, RE5, Heavy Rain, LBP 2, MLB and a lot more.
Yeah, I've got the 3D tv on order as well, and the glasses. I'm going to buy a new house just to play my 3D gaming on because I've got loads of money.
well i dont know about the US but its doing well from what game said when i pre ordered two units,kineckt even on the net requires a deposit,theres no refunds as well unless its broke @aphe manwhen you get the 3d tv its awesome sony bravia kdl60/903x = awesome i recommend the 3d pack from the store just to see what i mean.thats vjust a taster
That's right. What are you people thinking. Only the Kinect 's non existant easily cancelled Amazon sales count as selling well. Didn't you get the 360 fanboy newsletter? I'll lend you people a copy if you want.
i didn't think you subscribed to that particular fanboy newsletter.
selling well my a**
Weak "me too" damage control. Lol at this misleading fake news.
You look butthurt that Move sells well, works and has core games... while Kinect gets only bad press, and zero valuable game. Buy a PS3 and stop crying ?
move day -1, before release lol
omega is in nearly every article abot move or kinect, its sad to see someone to spend so much time defending kinect, instead of playing games, but maybe your 360 rrod and is currently being repaired so thats why you have all this extra time.
Preorders don't mean shit all. I preorder stuff all the time, doesn't mean im gona buy it.
'pre'order, but not 'order'. makes no sense. usually people preorder things they want to buy.
why the hell would you preorder some thing and not buy it ? wtf... I don't preorder stuff i don't want,if i put a preorder down it's a defiant buy for me.some times i even pay in full or half the price for a preorder.
it's quite amazing how well it's selling. especially as it isn't out for a few months. :)
He meant preorders were rising.
In the uk are doing really well in game it cost 5 pounds to preoder 1 move controller and 5 pounds for 1 sub controller. I've preodered 2 move controllers and 2 subs.
I'll buy at least a Move controller too. I'm a gamer and unlike Kinect, Move seems to bring something that interests me : a new way to control action in great games like Killzone, RE5 or Socom... Sorcerer looks really cool too. By the way, as a former PC gamer, I can see the point of Move, as in any shooter, it's always faster to use a pointing device like Move than a pad. Kinect, on the other hand, looks cumbersome and useless : no user feedback, no buttons, no precision, laggy, and no core game available... I can see why everybody hates so much on that one.
for my favourite game of the year Heavy Rain. Not sure though, I've never been too hot on motion controls.
Just for RE5 and Dead Space.. I think it would be uber fun. <3 Woo. Also good for Sony.. & core gamers. If Sony wins out that means that supporting the core gamers while also having casual games with Move is the right idea. While Kinect hasn't shown much at all..
Good to hear that it is selling well. Good sales will hopefully guarantee good support from developers. Sony has already shown some good software support for the initial release, so here's to hoping that the momentum continues to grow.
i will get 1 just to support sony and just to annoy the haters on this site LoL
If I get either Move or Kinect, it will be because I want to play games with it. Other than that, I could not give a damn about Sony or MS. They don't need my support in the bigger scale of things. They will get my money if they have what I need. I definitely would not spend money to annoy a anonymous hater I will never know beyond N4G.
That is what the title should say. WTF happened to Sony and M$. They both want to copy the Wii. Gaming will go to sh8t when Move and Kinect launch. It already did when the Wii launched.
even if muramasa and no more heroes were the only games ever on the wii, it would still be worth buying. if those are shit games, then please direct me to the "shit" section.
