Good to see it doing well.

I still need to pick up a Navigation controller.
I'm getting ethier RE5:Gold or waiting for KZ3 and Deadspace2.

AndrewRyan2585d ago

Not saying PSMove is bad! I am just saying that Americans buy anything they see on TV. It is sad if you ask me.

goosepoose2585d ago

thats good news. i invested everything i had in move. it is making so much munies for me. i yet hv to ty it out.

Kors2585d ago

So its 2.5 million sales worldwide excluding Japan.

This is great news.

gta_manic2585d ago

Ya look how Sony is putting the Move in with celebrities and talk shows to promote the move..wait

ABizzel12584d ago

It's doing great. That's 2.5 million for the first month.

October's total will be less even though it's just now launching in Japan. The sales of US and Europe will fall back for the holiday season, while Japan will give it the needed boost to keep numbers looking good. I expect sales close to 1.5 - 2 million.

Then the holiday will roll around boosting sales for November and December. So I expect Move to sell around 6 million units by years end.

crazyclown2584d ago (Edited 2584d ago )

KORS...you are right...Americans are dumb when they see an Xbox add and think that it has good value! LOL

stuna12584d ago

bought into the hype, that is the move! I guess the only thing left to do, is start a "MOVE" ment.

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2584d ago (Edited 2584d ago )

Kevin Butler for President! :P Congrats Sony on going multi platinum! lol

I predict it will reach 5 million by the end of the year.

Biggest2584d ago

AndrewRyan wins the "WTF Comment of the Thread!" award. It sold 500k more units in Europe. That means Americans by anything on TV?

yea thats not a bad number...
Im sure it will get close to 3million if not over by the end of the year.
That being said, Kinect has had lots of pre-order sales so Im sure both will be fairly level pegged.
As much as any fanboy will say the other will not sell, its not true.
Theres a market for both kinect and move. Microsoft have the home advantage, I want to see how well they do.

Nitrowolf22585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

isn't it 1.5 in EU right now? (last reported at least)
so i am guessing its well close to 3 million, and then today is Japan launch

is it safe to say by the end of the year Move will have around 4-6 Million sold?

It's doing better then most people expected

Tapey2585d ago

Possibly. But yeah, it seems to have had a really impressive launch in Europe and America, I'm shocked at how well it's performing. Sony must be pleasantly surprised as well, I doubt they expected it to take off quite this well.

acky12584d ago

Move deserves to sell a lot imo, don't really care if it does or not tho. It has displayed working games that look like fun and some hardcore games are already here and in the works... definitely something positive for gaming.
Yet to be seen if kinect will provide the same and in fact, all we've seen from kinect so far is sub-par games with suspect reliability. If the shortcomings of kiinect are not improved on I don't think it deserves to sell.

raztad2584d ago (Edited 2584d ago )

NO.

At least read the article.

EDIT:

LMAO. The writer updated the article saying that is "shipped" to retail. I dont get where that info comes from tho. It doesnt make sense.

jordanlund2584d ago

From the update:

"Update: The 1 million includes Latin America (whatever small amount that is), and more importantly, it's sold to retail (not to consumers)."

It doesn't matter how many you ship to retail if nobody is buying it. Around here the shelves are bursting with Move units and games, it seems nobody is interested.

raztad2584d ago

I dont know where the writer got that info. It doesnt cite Tretton.

What Tretton said suggest MOVE is selling extremely well to consumers

"SCEA boss Jack Tretton has noted that Move is in very high demand, and currently demand for Move is ahead of supply. Sony actually doesn't expect to have enough supply to meet the demand until February."

Try to order a wand from Amazon and you will get what Tretton is saying.

40cal2584d ago

jordan

I don't know, or care where you live, but Move is sold out everywhere else.

donniebaseball2585d ago

I actually think this is a pretty good tally for them considering the marketing has been seemingly low-key. It's not like MS and Kinect where the $$$ is crazy

theonlylolking2585d ago

Move is not innovative. Its just very accurate and detects motion forward,backward,up,down,left, and right.

Kinect is not innovative either. Its just a copy and paste of sony's device.

*country accent*Its like my mama always told me companies steal each others ideas and call them their own.

jaysquared2585d ago

The real question is did it move any console and introduced the PS3 to the casual gamers like the Wii has? It would be nice if Sony would release their NPD numbers. Wonder why they haven't done that.

Red_Orange_Juice2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

and 1,5M in Europe, that's 2,5M US/EU not bad, not bad

douchedebater2584d ago

It's actually hard to track Move numbers with understanding what move actually is. First, is MOVE a controller and a camera? MOVE just the controller? Is MOVE a camera, a controller, and a Sub-Controller?

Either way, good numbers. Congrats Sony.

firelogic2584d ago

Why does it matter if it's move, or move+camera, or move+PS3, or move+sub, etc...

Bottomline is, they've moved 2.5 million move controllers.

ARBitrator2584d ago

It's quite ironic that you have logic as part of your username. To me, douchdebater's comment was valid as it does matter what constitutes move. If I just bought a PS-Eye do I have move? If I bought just a Move controller do I have move?

I think as a minimum you need a PS-Eye and One Move controller to have move.

With that being said, the Title should say "PS3 Move controllers sell 1 million..."

Even still it's a good number, I really don't know why you felt the need to get butt hurt about it.

raztad2585d ago

God.

Patcher is such a failure. Only 300K sold!, Sales bellow expectations! What a clown.

Right now if you try to buy one off Amazon, you have to wait 2 to 4 weeks. Third party are out of stock or selling it for $70+

moparful992584d ago

I bought my two from one of the walmarts here.. I live in a town of about 60k so its not huge but the walmart where I bought my move is completely sold out and hasn't had stock since september... I personally haven't met anyone else here who has bought one but obviously they have... Out of the 3 gamestops we have there are only a few navi controllers left at one of them... I knew pachters nonsensical ramblings was just that.. He really needs to find a new job....

4-5 mill by the end of the year, awesome!

Ju2585d ago

If those numbers are accurate, 2.5M sold already. And Christmas season hasn't even started yet. I would think 4-5 is a bit low.

blusoops2584d ago

It was just launched in Japan this week.

kneon2584d ago

5 million is probably the minimum to expect. The best games are yet to come and the advertising has been pretty light.

Redempteur2584d ago

i really think eyepet move edition helped move to get into homes .

Tumble , heavy rain made me decide to get one.
(while getting ready for killzone3 )

Lord Gunchrote2585d ago

Thats a cool number. Its probably impossible to determine how many of each product sold, but good nonetheless.

Dno2585d ago

If kinect sales much more then this then we have a motion control take over ; ;. i hope most games will still use the joypad tho... i guess we will see.

Stealth20k2585d ago (Edited 2585d ago )

motion controlling will never take over at all. Since basically motion controller makes 99 percent of games worse.

SuperStrokey11232585d ago

Just wondering if you ever heard of the wii? Apparantly its the best selling console this get but about 30 million or something. I also heard it has motion control...

TreMillz2585d ago

that its the cheapest, that its aimed a smaller children and that its what most parents would buy their kids.

OSU_Gamer2584d ago (Edited 2584d ago )

@SuperStrokey....

So because the Wii sold well to kids and casual gamers, it automatically means that motion controllers makes games better?

It sure made Zelda better.... /s

Not sure what side of the fanboy fence you are on, but you might want to be careful using the sales = quality card.

raztad2584d ago

Dunno about the Wii but MOVE is a quality piece of hardware. Consumer response is extremely favorable. Even competitive online multiplayer is possible with MOVE.
