Germans love Move! The European PlayStation Move Starter-Kit is Sold Out at Online-Retailer Amazon.de. Furthermore all Move Hardware and Devices are in the Top 20 Bestseller Charts
LMAO. He is some posts bellow trying to spin this news. OT: Nobody is expecting MOVE to sell massively day one, but is good thing people are interested in the tech. More people buying it more support from devels for the device. Mine is preordered. Cant wait to try it.
Well Germans show their intellect, they know what is good and what isn't(it begins with letter K)
Thank you. Too bad I did not get my order from Amazon.de ... FFFFFFFFFFFF
They are talking about Move selling out, yet you don't want Omega to talk sales. Thats funny. He is actually on topic. The big question is what does sold out really mean? How many kits were sent to Amazon Germany? Were they only 10 kits, 50? Real numbers would give a better factual story.
@Bigpapy Who are you talking to? I find Omega amusing. I'm even going to bubble him up.
"The big question is what does sold out really mean? How many kits were sent to Amazon Germany? Were they only 10 kits, 50? Real numbers would give a better factual story." We probably won't find those numbers unless the PS Move does well. However, how come the article don't talk about the overall standing of PS Move in relation to the full video game chart, instead of the Sony only section. That would give you a better idea.
let's all taste Omega4's tears, mmmmmmmm.
as i expected!!! GJ Sony!
Damn means smaller online retailers are gonna have a tough time getting decent allocations. Be very funny if Sony goofed by doing a limited initial run. But will turn into shortage Gotta have it! syndrome i ordered end of july hope i get it all.
Still in stock in the UK, strange they are out of stock when they didn't even put a purchase limit on it......... Still not gonna be as big as people think, still see Kinect outselling Moves WW installbase day one. @SuperTiger Why would I be scared? You guys should just stick to the angle of Move having more hardcore games than Kinect cause if you want to take the sales angle prepared to be owned, badly.
i can smell your fear
Does it smell like urine?
Apparently it smells like butthurt! lol This doesn't surprise me, wasn't GamesCon held in Germany? A lot of people probably got to try it and loved it.
Oh COME ON ! Omega, it's the weekend don't you have anything better to do ?
he's just waiting for Halo Reach. the only decent game on Xbox 360
we have games as a gamer thats all that matters, you are probably a microsoft employee. Ask yourself do you really want to play on kinect? 360 fanboyism has blinded you
omega, don't flail you words if you can flail your hands ^^
Now, correct me if i'm wrong, but weren't both of MS's Kinect Shows flops at both E3 and GC, not to mention the amount of embarrassing moves MS tried to pull of to make the Kinect look good, they completely failed with that. Now, lets see what sony has to offer this year, We have MOVE, which is pretty much a great hit without the mass adverts, Portal 2, coming with Steam Support, KILLZONE 3, Twisted Metal 2011... Honestly, the amount of titles and support sony has to offer, it's no wonder their Sold out of Stock with the move in Germany. The fact is, all Xbox has got to offer is Halo Reach, but correct me if i'm wrong again, didn't Bungie decide to become a Multi-Platform developer with Activison? The fact is, Xbox has nothing left apart from pretty good services, a good looking console and Halo Reach, your gonna need alot more then "Sales" to see MS redeem themselves. Might i suggest you get your act together, then do us a favor and supply some real info and then maybe try to TROLL then...
we'd never hear from him again. 99% of N4G knows that he's about as vapid as a balloon. I actually look forward to his comments now, just to see what ridiculous spew he ejects.
Yeah, it's obvious enough he is "Vapid as a Balloon", the funny thing is, the only real info he can get is Sales, otherwise he can't give any Quality Assurance. :)
You, sir, are correct. Hence, there is no need to correct you.
lol omega pretty arrogant quote, Germany is one of the largest markets in the EU along with France and the UK so if its sold out in Germany im pretty confident that will follow in France and here. "You guys should just stick to the angle of Move having more hardcore games than Kinect" So your openly admitting that kinect has no hardcore/good games on it at all ? nice trolling ! :D
Nice notice, it's nice to see he Screwed himself over, hopefully he's Face Palming himself now! LOL
those 360 kinect orders will vanish come review time, kinect is going to bomb in reviews, well apart from cnet which will give it 6/5 just because it reports for MS...
Well we will see about those reviews, if MS really wants to screw the consumers, they won't lift the embargo for making reviews etc until the day of release. That would not be a very good thing for them to do though, If they don't want angry customers. Even fans of Xbox and MS have to agree to that (thanks for the disagrees I'm gonna get for saying that).
Must you spend every moment you come here looking stupid? You never have facts, are always a complete hypocrite, and do nothing but spin, spin, and spin some more. It's at the point that even when you try to troll ps3 info you make it sound better the 360. For example, let us take this quote for you: "Why would I be scared? You guys should just stick to the angle of Move having more hardcore games than Kinect" so right there even YOU (a 120% xbox fanboy), are admitting kinect won't service the hardcore like Move will. Do yourself a favor, get a job so you can get yourself a ps3 and stop all this blind envy you have going.
The amount of money MS is going to put in Kinect's advertising will be staggering. It's going to sell. Most likely more than Move. Also, the Kinect bundle is cheaper than Sony's offering. Doesn't make it better, but there's going to be more consumer awareness for it and price point is always a factor. A lot of problems though selling the most hardware with the least amount of substance. MS is walking a precarious line. The Nintendo Wii showed us all, you don't always get the most 3rd party support by selling the most hardware. Ironically, one of the Move's biggest complaints is it's a Wii-Mote clone. That's true but I see it from a completely different perspective. Now that 3rd parties can produce similar software supporting 2 companies (Wii & Move), why would you make an exclusive IP that can only generate revenue from just Kinect?
You mean the bundle with a console? Sony will most likely by the arrival of the holidays lower the price of their bundle so it matches the Xbox+Kinect one. Thats one of the things thats good with releasing it a few months before the holidays. They can then afford to lower the price to match the competition.
here comes dj spinmaster
you must be a very sad sad person! :(
He is probably just a teenage kid that gets no attention at home, so he comes online and does what he can to get some here. I imagine he enjoys being known by practically every N4G user.
Poor Mart/pp/Power of...etc etc :D
you are crazy if you think kinect will sell more than moves ltd day 1.its going to fail like hddvd.
"Sure Move might have hardcore games and be more accurate,..."---- you know who said that???? you did omega. YOU DID.
With all the bad press and negative reviews and losing every comparison - I think Kinect is going to flop badly at the retail sales as well. I can imagine online orders could do well because of ignorance - but if someone steps into the gaming stores and sees Move and Kinect side by side - well - lets just say the retail sales for Kinect is going to be less than stellar.
Ok, to play Move you need 1 camera ( PSeye ) and one PSmove so... regardless of how many cameras sell post launch the only figure we can use it the number of MOVE controllers sold, even if it's to one user. Even if some games require two move controllers and I'm pretty sure people will buy 2 move controllers they count as two SEPARATE devices.
MOVE deserves all the success it gets,i'm glad GERMAN gamers has good taste in games + hardware's quality & functionality. ;) Ps3 the WORLD's favourite HD console. ;) http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/resu... lol new video here:shows the device made specially for the likes of omega4: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
There is so much fail in those videos. LOL. The first one is my all time fav.
your a bad influence joypads but http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wow, more and more Move looks like it could actually be a hit.
told you move is going to surprise us all it's just people in the UK are still eating up MS promises like no tomorrow, it's a shame because move is epic and will be a success!!
MS demonstrated Kinect at stupid places in UK. at Fashion shows, concerts to name a few. PS Move has been praised by many UK reviewers. so i think PS move will do well. probably a little better than Kinect
Don't class everyone from uk as dumb as omega...Move is the best motion controller on the market....And my ps3 gives me lots of enjoyment, And more important games games games............
im from uk. i may not beable to spell but im far from dumb.
yeah not everyone is, but unfortunately there are alot of people who love the 360 over here even though they have had several letdowns on hardware and games... sorry if you thought I meant all people are as dumb as omega, I also know several intelligent people and am slowly converting more people to knowing that ps3 does not suck and is a great console, my two nephews used to insist ps3 sucked and had no games until they played on it and now they want to trade in their 360's for a ps3
maybe Germany need to blitzkrieg the UK sense to teach them the potential of the Move
So many people over here(USA) still never even heard of PS Move. PS Move should do well when Core gamers show their support. I'm glad Sony didn't take Kinects road and gave support to their fan base. Looking over at M$ side they just bring bad news to their core gamers. Halo Reach, Gears 3, Fable III only AAA exclusives, hopefully M$ announces more. I was excited about Kinect, but even their casual games aren't as good as the Wii's shovelware.
Nice Germany :-)
It is only going to get better for Move. The main criticism leveled at Move is the lack of quality launch titles - an issue that will mainly be resolved by Christmas time when the full launch lin eup will be released including game slike Time Crisis Rasing Storm. By the following quarter when games like Sorcery, KZ3 and Dead Spacce 2 arrive, the Move will truly find it's stride. It's looks like Move will indeed have long legs.
You did not mention LBP 2 :) That should definitely be mentioned :) Can't wait :D
@Omega4 is getting pwned in here lol.
PS Move bundle selling out, but what about people who has a PS Eye, and only needs to buy an extra PS Move controller, how do we add them into total sales, so we can stop debating about Kinect sales. No matter which one will do better in sales, we all know PS Move has the best core/casual games for any motion controls as of right now. Keep on talking about sales while I'll bring up AAA exclusives and have fun playing my PS Move. @Omega just go play with ur Kinectimals and stop trolling already.
Got a PS Eye with Eye of Judgment Another with EyePet And another with Move starter kit. I just use the extra PS Eye on the second PS3 and the other on my PC for a webcam. (Also have two EyeToys - but they are just in the cupboard - used for playin old EyeToy games for PS2)
Good to hear.
Fanboys will always adjust their opinion according to the articles. If the article had said 'Kinect sells well in Germany', Omega and Bigpappy wouldn't be concerned about numbers. They would be here taunting 'I told you Kinect would sell well'. Same thing when Toysrus said Move preorders were up. Kinect defenders said Toysrus sales didn't matter. But they only mattered when their Kinect preorders went up.
move VS kinnect round 1 come on move . jab to the right. (Whack) come on kinnect move your arms. (ouch! too slow) wait wots happening kinnect not moving. whats wrong is it his lense but wtch one. oh no wait the cpu fried from the excitment. DISKINNECT PEOPLE SORRY. move wins i like to move it move it. thankyou people for supporting me i knew you could win move. i just have one thing to say. I ONLY DO EVERYTHING !!
This fight was over before it even started. Move: $50 to start with for single player Kinect: $150 to play old EyeToy games PS Eye / EyeToy: $30 to play EyeToy / PS Eye games MS management made a huge error in judgement on Kinect and is trying to market themselves out of the problem. Not going to work. All it is going to do after the enormous first month sales is to increase the number of angry customers trying to return Kinect. I predict we will see the most number of returns after the holiday season for Kinect when customers realize they have been had.
Manufacturing capacity - Why create capacity for huge initial sales when you can scale up - and sort out minor issues as you scale up. MS create capacity for huge sales - make all the errors in the first batch - and is then stuck with the capacity. Sony starts smaller - ramps up as demand increases. Makes more sense - better quality control - less issues when scaling production up if demand outstrip supply. MS will have a huge problem when the demand plummets to downscale the production capacity, and deal with thousands of returns because people will think the thing is broken because it is so laggy compared to Move.
