Launch sales for Sony Corp.’s Playstation Move Starter Bundle and the Playstation Move controller for the Playstation 3 ranked in the top three at Amazon.com this week amid strong initial demand for the SKUs.
Good to see Move do so well. I'm pretty excited for my Move to be shipped!
However, as great as percentages are, the real numbers tell the full story. Its in the top 3, thats awesome, but how many units are we talking?
how many units indeed
Don't know how many units have been sold but one thing's for sure, where I live Move, navigation controller sold separately, and Eypet bundles (game + Cam) are sold out everywhere, all the shops mark it as bestseller items. As for starter packs and PSEye there are still available. That tells me that it's primarily PS3 owners that have rushed to get the Move. Sony is smart to wait just a few weeks more before starting to advertise it, when the campain will start, casuals will already have heard how great it is by word-of-mouth and maybe even already tried it out.
they're not selling it in stores yet are they?
I went to a Target, Walmart and 2 Best Buys before finding mine today. The last Best Buy had the controllers on a display right as I walked in. The people at Target told me they'd be getting theirs in tomorrow.
i'll check my local best buy tomorrow if they don't have it i'll go to the Sony store.
I bought mine yesterday at best buy honestly I don't know how many units each store wanted I went to game stop a few weeks ago and was considering pre-ordering but found there was no need ( I wish there was ) but things seem to be looking up
I bought mine from walmart at 3 in the morning of the 17th.. I walked in said I wanted a move and the lady whent to the back, a few minutes later came out and handed it to me.. YOu wont be dissapointed whenever you finally get yours..
They are selling out almost everywhere around here. BestBuy.com has the games on backorder right now too.
I had the bundle pre ordered at GS but decided to buy an extra controller, unfortunately they were sold out. After 3 more stops I found one, good luck if you didn't pre-order.
That is good to hear. The best part is this happening even before the Move kiosks are in place, all their comercials are on the air and the Coca Cola deal has kicked in. Just imagine how much it will sell afterwords. If they sell a lot that means more developer support and more games. Yay.
had the $100 bundles but didnt get any move games in shipment. i was pretty pissed.
Had my 2 Moves and 1 Nav pre-purchased at GS next to BB on Rock, and at 10am I made sure to pick it up and Sports Champion ASAP. After a little SC gameplay, I'm getting 2 more Moves for some family beatdowns. And I can't wait for a Move enabled MMO based on SC.
i was talking about was the rock and 21st one. i should of checked out that game stop. its too bad i was tired and wanted to get back home.
My friend bought it out of sudden impulse the day it came out. We tried it with Tiger Woods and it was a lot of fun! The interesting part of the trip to buy it was that there was a lot of Halo posters and Kinect boxes when you walk in, but there was a crowd gathering around the Move stuff. A guy even walked out with a Move bundle before us. I can't wait till my paycheck comes in!
I want one, I'm hoping all sony first party games utilize it from now on.
Congrats sony, may we see more great games
I <3 PS MOVE!!! Great...great job Sony.
I had my Move/Move Nav controllers pre-ordered and I am extremely happy with them. I hope it does well... Selling well means more support/games.
