yea i remember when the sony slim came out they had alleged shortages for months. I also remember the sony fans claiming that without the alleged shortages sony would be selling many more consoles. In other words, not only did the sony fans believe sony's claims about shortages, they also used the claim to support their theory that sony is selling more consoles than the 360. but of course, when MS says that there are shortages, it is bull and they are trying to hide something. you guys and your double standards never stop amazing me. I personally know that all companies lie and/or spin the facts to their advantage, its part of business. Thus I am always skeptical of their claims. I never blindly believe what sony or ms say. I find people who believe anything sony and/or ms say to be pathetic tools. o and being sold out in amazon germany does not prove anything. Ill wait and c how this tech sells. Regardless of how well it does i will not buy it, and the same thing goes to the wii clone move.
How can you sell out of something thats not for sale??
You are just trolling, but I will respond for the uninformed: "Retailers sold a pre-order of their allocated stock that MS has allocated to them. They can no longer take more orders, until they can guarantee enough units are allocated to them to fulfill their existing orders." The fact that there are numerous report from various retailers about shortages pre-release is pretty damning evidence that it is going to be hot this Christmas for MS! Like it or not, that is what it is.
Fail troll is... FAIL
PS Move No. 17, 18, 23 at Amazon.com Nice! http://www.amazon.com/s/ref...
Sold out but being beat by 10 other games, one of those is a freaking Farming Simulator? Something's fishy.
where is sonys move on that list?
What were the total numbers sold? Notice how MS doesn't reveal that info only that it's sold out. Move with 2.5 million already sold-- Japan sales coming soon. Lets see MS sell that many in one month's time. Kniect users have fun playing these kinds of games. lol http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It is ranked number 66 http://www.amazon.de/gp/bes...
Did Sony release the PS Move sales figures before it was out?
U.S. ...where's Kinect on that list? lol So Amazon = global sales now? @SmokexFFx Well if you're going to make the statement that you're all sold out then the next logical question to ask is how many did you sell.
Your gonna compare pre-orders to something thats been on sale now for over a month?? Wow thats fanboyism MS must be proud! Thats like comparing Forzas sales the week of GT5 release to GT5. Idiot..
"Lets see MS sell that many in one month's time." What the hell are you talking about can't you read? When Kinect does finally hit the streets lets see them sell the same quantity in the same amount. Clear!?
that is the move and the ps3 console at 69 currently the controller is 59 and the nav is 56 ( kinda weird since at most you woul only need 1 nav maybe 2)
move SHIPPED not SOLD!
So what you're saying is that Sony didn't sell their PS Moves, they gave away 1 million to third party retailers for free? What company that do you know that gives away their company's product for free?
Ah so shipped is important now Sony say it?? I mean shipped = sales when MS say it but when Sony say it it's differnt?? You 360 fanboys are totally confusing!
If a company shipped 1 million units to third party retailers it means that they sold that many because companies don't ship product without getting PAID FOR THAT PRODUCT. What fanboys should really be focused on is how fast that stock gets depleted and the quantity of future orders.
Did you not see the German Kinect ads with David Hasselhoff? :p edit: What's with the disagree? Obviously I'm joking around.
This is the ad with David. Watch closely as all the games get demonstrated in the clip. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
misleading title. should say germany
Kinect is the David Hasselhoff of the gaming world.
i'm not with you but that was funny.
Nah, Hoff is cooler.
Hey! Don't Hassel the Hoff! :-P
Not to be trolling or anything but i bet most people bought it to show MS that it dosent work.
We have yet another contender for dumbest comment of 2010.
i second the motion
that's funny man and so true
Obviously u guys are to fucking stupid to understand what i'm saying they're showing microsoft they dont wnat that crap.
oooooohhhh thats what you mean, they're showing Microsoft they don't want it by giving them money for it. Makes sense. pft.
hey Hell-Helghast that is probably the dumbest response i have seen in N4G, and it was also very disrespectful...kudos for the award..it is well deserved. edit @hell I sure you can count to one.
@Hell-Helghast It's not that we don't get it, it's that your comments are incredibly moronic. Edit: Make that x3! Here...
There more idiots here than i can count.
First I read an article about MS telling retail shops to stop Kinect pre-orders due to a shortage. Now I read this article about Amazon being sold out. So is it sold out due to good sales, shortage, both or just BS?
The "sold out" card.
Man, I never underestimate the power of good advertising combinded with uneducated consumers.
So ranked number 66 and sold out. Wow we are impressed. Whatever. I would rather play games like Table Tennis or Golf with Move than worry about which one sold the most.
The Kinect sensor is selling very well on Amazon.com (U.S. version), but the red Wii, which goes on sale three days later, and the PS3 Move console bundle are both outselling either of the Kinect console bundles. Apparently a new color for the Wii is attracting more new users than Kinect is.
Longrod_Von_Hugendon Move with 2.5 million already sold hahhaha 300k sold in USA. 2.5 million shipped. PC WORLD site: Sony responded to a request for clarification, noting that Jack Tretton said 1 million "shipped," and that the number actually includes both North and Latin America, not just the U.S. and Canada (as others have reported). The 2.5 million number comes from the addition of Andrew House's 1.5 million "shipped" European claim. The takeaway: Shipped, but not necessarily sold through, though Koller's comments definitely lean toward the latter. -PC World
Shipped vs. sold is one of the oldest arguments in the console warrior's handbook. When we're talking tens of millions of units in a market of hundreds of millions of potential customers, there's no way that any of the big three know exactly what the delta is when comparing what's been dumped into the supply chain versus what is actually in homes. What the big three report is always their estimation anyway. They should be able to tell pretty easily what their manufacturing capacity is, how many are in production and how much inventory they have on hand. But once it is out in retail they have no way to get exact numbers.
Oh, look. It's this again. Keep up the good fight I guess. I'm not quite sure what Amazon sales ranks have to do with anything, but ok.
Kinect is a useless piece of shit. And yes yes you might say that's just one theory, but no doubt it's a MAJOR one. Germany? Cmon now.. selling out in that country doesn't count as bragging rights. 1.5 million in EUROPE as a whole though? WoW EDIT: Last part refers to the PS Move. Obviously.
Originally all I heard was "Kinect will do well only in America" So far it's been doing equally well all over. Cant wait to get the solid numbers of Units sold. Where 1 million sold means 1 million people bought one. Unlike the Move sales figures, which are saying "Units shipped" Combined with the fact that they count every nunchuk, wand and PS Eye as a "Move sale". It's a bit misleading.
I see the typical Kinect haters are treading hard in this positive Kinect thread. Good thing what is said on N4G doesn't apply to the "real" world. Kinect will sell millions, and will sell more units than move before end of year and past. You can thank MS with their $500 million marketing budget and the help of Oprah and Ellen promoting it on their show.
I notice you don't say we can thank the quality of the hardware and its games. just an observation.
The first part of your post is applicable to just about everything that is on this site, including news about Amazon Germany selling out of Kinect pre-orders and it's somehow indicative of the huge success of Kinect. I don't doubt that Kinect will sell millions but sales will be on par with Move, maybe a little more but nothing like the way you Kinect lovers seem to want to illustrate. With the ad budget they put behind it it had better sell well because it's probably going for a small loss at this point. If it doesn't sell well past it's first three months on the market E&D Division has to start answering to shareholders that are going to be pissed off and start wondering why they had to release an expensive device to prop up their console midway through it's life cycle.
I kinda just took it for granted that Kinect will sell more than Move, but Pachter recently said that Move is selling better than he thought it would and is "a lock" to sell 3-4M units by the end of the year. Same goal Microsoft has for Kinect. I know a lot of people on here hate Michael Pachter, but he really does know what he's talking about. source on 3-4M: http://latimesblogs.latimes...
I hope Germans have really big living rooms to play in.
More specifically? Roughly around 1,000 sq. feet.
there are no constrained parts for Kinect... so if you want one you will get one, just have to wait till next allotments, which wont be far behind... I am just waiting to watch the youtube vids of Kinect.... my guess the audience is gonna be 15 and under.. not a knock, so dont take it that way
no matter what you Kinect haters say this bit of tech is happening and is going to sell very well and soon as great devs get on to it, then boom great bit of kit :) you watch what developer will be doing with this soon, remember we are not using any add ons yet so they could add there own :O the list is endless.
