Germans Love PlayStation Move

According to some recent sales data, it appears that Germans love the PlayStation Move about as much as they love David Hasselhoff… Which is a lot!

The German branch of the world’s largest online retailer, is now completely sold out of PlayStation Move Starter Bundles. We’re reporting on this news for two reasons – to urge you to pre-order now, so you aren’t Move-less on launch day – and – because we wanted to bring up a long running Saturday Night Live joke from ex-Weekend Update anchor, Norm MacDonald where he insists Germans love David Hasselhoff.

Since Sony admittedly isn’t expecting major day one sales of the PlayStation Move, there might be a chance that Sony will be more on the conservative side with Move production, making it a bit hard to find on launch day. If this sell out on the world’s largest online retailer is any indication, that might just be the case. To ensure you have a PlayStation Move on launch date, we suggest you put your pre-order in now.

I'm awaiting the PS3 trolls to flaunt this and the xbox 360 trolls to bring up kinect pre-orders.

I wasn't aware that Amazon alone represents the buying demands of Germany? lol..As you said eggbert, only trolls take this crap seriously. Good for a laugh though.

"Kinect will destroy Move this holiday season in sales"

lol.. I think ur crazy, not because your statement is wrong..but because u feel the need to mention it in an article thats completely irrelated to your statement. Btw...why are you concerned about who outsells who? How does that benefit you?

goflyakite2996d ago

I think this is a duplicate:

OMG; the Sales!

Lately Xbox 360 Fanboys (Omega, Big Silky to mention few ones) only care for the sales and Pre orders! But not the quantity and quality of games.

As you can see below.

btk2996d ago

That excuse will be over in three months time when Kinect sales start lagging after the initial release hype sales.
Then they will start hyping "future potential" and ignore sales, games and quality.

Oldsnake0072996d ago

in Germany it's like 4 mil ps3 vs 1-2 mil 360. Germany is Sony land.

big_silky2996d ago

German loved Hitler too. Just sayin'.

Everybody hates Christ ... That's racist !!

Elven62996d ago

Pick up a book kid and pray you'll never live in a country where intimidation and "thuggery" is used to "sway" votes. This doesn't even include what'll begin after power is taken.

Montoya2996d ago

You basically just descibed the USA.

lonix2996d ago

Like arnold schwarzenegger

fireplace2996d ago

It doesnt't change the fact that it was germans who loved him and his ideology.

n4gno2996d ago (Edited 2996d ago )

like more than 50% of americans loved bush, and xbox more than ps3.

it's not because some people are wrong, dumbs, brainwashed than everyone else in the country is.

"Kinect will destroy Move this holiday season in sales"

If you are right (we never know with brainless people), it would just be a sad thing, again, the sheep would be choosing inferior hardware, with no games. so who can enjoy that kind of sad result ? not gamers.

MisterNiwa2996d ago

This made me laugh hard.

(And I am german.)

GusBricker2996d ago (Edited 2996d ago )

How is that possible? lol

I'm all for the Move, I'm getting it for disc golf, it's the only game my wife will play, well, Frisbee Golf in WSR, but its time to upgrade.

I hope it doesn't suck.

gtsentry2996d ago

GusBricker2996d ago

...and its pre-orders have been huge already.

PoorMansGT2996d ago

@gus- you havent seen official orders,you saw some other stuff. wanna bet kinect aint going to big as you think?

PoorMansGT2996d ago

kinect is a pos that is limited and pointless,it will fail like hd-dvd.

Sizzon2996d ago

yeah in America, cuz you're the one stuck with the 360 while in Europe and Japan the PS3 is more popular and PS Move is gonna be more popular there.
