It could, it could not be.

Only sales can tell.

@greenring - you took the words right outta my mouth.

"Sony reported that it sold more than a million Move devices in North and Latin America in the 30 days after it hit the market in September.

"Retail demand is incredibly strong and we're working hard to keep the product in stock," said SCEA chief executive Jack Tretton."

So much for those Patcher/VGchartz guesses, heh?

Damn thing has gone and sold three and a half times as many as Patcher - and the twelve troll riddled articles created on the back of him - suggested.

Add those >1 million to the >1.5 first month in Europe, and it's cleared >2.5 million worldwide and still yet to be launched in a very big PS3 market (Japan).

With the holiday season coming up, those numbers are likely to jump up pretty significantly again to.

You wanted Sony to 'release the numbers'. They've bowed to your wishes. Question is how are you going to spin them? (i'd ask 'if' you're going to spin them, but that seems redundant).

Well 2.5 million sold and it just came out in Japan today so sales say it's doing good thanx 360 troll.

don't know about bundles but move controllers are sold out everywhere in my area. even most online sites are sold out.

Perkel2530d ago

It's true. I tried yesterday to buy whole bundle with navi and there is no Move at all. No Move , No bundles, No navi :( It's Sold Out in Poland ...

I talked to retail dude and he said that probably they ship move by early november...

Baba19062530d ago

same in switzerland, but i think that they didnt stock many of them in the first place. most stores just had a bunch of bundles and no single controllers. im still waiting for my order from over a month ago.

I mean i tried out move and to me its just too much like Wii.

@wat634 ya, I mean its cool that its like Wii I guess but I mean everyone already has a Wii so barely anyone wants move

Hellsvacancy2530d ago

Well its a good job no mofo cares what u think then isnt it

aceitman2530d ago

@ GreenRingOfLife
get ur troll azz out of ps3 articles ive looked at all ur comments and u do nothing but troll all pos. with ms all neg for sony so whatever u say blow it out the back side and stay out of ps3 articles if u cant act like a fanboy

ingiomar2530d ago (Edited 2530d ago )

yeah its to similar to Wii and does nothing new(then again kinect doesn't do anything new yet either). Casuals will barely notice that move exists.

And what kind of hardcore gamer wants to play a hardcore shooter like killzone with move when its better with the controller? Of course it will be fun at first but then you will quickly realize how much better the controller is.

so why would they want? at least with Move I was able to play an even better more natural evolution of Heavy Rain.

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2530d ago

They're exactly the same I mean just look at this footage.

so is Kinect/Eyetoy but do you see sites with 1 million comparisons? NO

DigitalAnalog2530d ago (Edited 2530d ago )

Are you sure you didn't buy the "black" Wii-mote?

I know, it really looks like the PS Move when you think about it. Except that it doesn't have a glowing sphere on top.

You DO remember the MOVE had a glowing sphere. Come on, you 360 trolls LOVE to make fun of that.

**Looks at GROL's Black wii-mote

Oh wait, you didn't.... uhh....

-End statement

jneul2530d ago (Edited 2530d ago )

well according to you no-one was going to buy move, you was wrong about that and you will be wrong about move sales dying

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2530d ago (Edited 2530d ago )

Can't wait to play it with Killzone 3.

morkendo232530d ago (Edited 2530d ago )
