it will be available on november.

Sony sucks. They dont even knw the demand.

Cyrus3652930d ago

Some locations have none, went in gamestop, and they had some in my area...but it's hit or miss.

TotalPS3Fanboy2930d ago

underestimate how popular Move will be.

Hoping they have enough supplies for the Holiday.

WildArmed2930d ago

I've been searching HI and LOW for a PS Move in my area.
I finally found a Target that had 2 Move's remaining about 10miles away from my house.
So i went and bought em.

Now I have to go return one move controller and get a navigation controller. lol, I totally 4got that I needed a navi controller too :D

Soo yeah, going back today and getting a navi controller (and returning 1 Move).
Tight budget FTL

This is hardware we're talking about, it takes more time to produce than software.

DasBunker2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

in after people claiming at their local stores they have oceans of moves collecting dust... theres ALWAYS some of them in this kind of articles. *yawn*

The good news is people want the Move and the bad news there's not enough in supply. Sony will get them out before the holidays.

marinelife92930d ago

I had to look around for a while to find another Move controller. Walmart, Target, Gamespot were all out including all but one Best Buy that had plenty on their shelf.

masterg2930d ago

It's the same here in Denmark.

I had people over on Friday so I figured I better go out and get a second controller. Non of the shop had any. Not even the starter kit.

avengers19782930d ago

It's getting plenty of good word of mouth. I seen some at BestBuy the other day but only a few sprotschampions bundles and Navigators. But I have seen the PS3 320 gig move bundle all over the place.
Maybe Sony was just expecting to sell more to first time PS3 buyers then, there base.
IMO the Move is well worth the purchase, and I've had a lot of fun with Sports Champions, can't wait for The Shoot, and Sorcery to come out.

Congratulations Sony

The Move had a good start and the demand is still high

I just wish more games were compatible with the move

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2930d ago

And is not even out in Japan. PS move for sure is a success.

TheLastGuardian2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

I think Sports Champions, RE5, Heavy Rain and Tumle is enough to last til The Shoot, Time Crisis and The Fight comes out. I'm not too impressed with the demos for The Shoot or Time Crisis and The Fight looks like it would be fun for a little bit then get repetitive and boring. I don't think it will sell well because it requires 2 move controllers. I will be using my Dualshock 3 mostly for the rest of this year except for with The Sly Collection and GT5. I can't wait to use it with Killzone 3, Socom 4, Sorcery, Playstation Move Heroes and LBP2.

ndibu2930d ago

4 weeks later they will run out.

jneul2930d ago

nice try troll moves sales are around 500k by now, funny you have one bubble... wonder why

Meisadragon2930d ago

DAMNIT, DO you see the ps3 fanboys anywhere? dont provoke them and make this site fanboy hellhole again

acky12930d ago

the first few comments were borderline fanboy.

lexington2930d ago

It's in short supply because all the retirement homes are buying them up to replace their Wii's. The pretty little pink ball thingy is easier for the residents to see.

Denethor_II2930d ago

"the first few comments were borderline fanboy."
lol

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

Meisadragon it's too late. I declare war! lol

Corny joke. I'll remember than one when Kinect hits store shelves.

Adva2930d ago

Where the hell are the mods for this website?!

There is a store here in Arkansas that has cases of them sitting in the stockroom.

madpuppy2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

in the middle of the Nevada desert. They are right next to the crate with the German writing and the burn marks obscuring the swastikas.

Sony has top people working on them as we speak...Top people.

acky12930d ago

So many hypocritical ps3 fans on here, it gets so boring everytime something good happens for sony and people personally congratulate them as if it makes their life meaningful but when something good happens for microsoft they downplay and attack it.

MysticStrummer2930d ago

Is it about as boring as 360 fans trolling PS3 articles?

acky12930d ago

Yeh, it gets to be more boring tho cos there's more ps3 die-hards than there are xbox on here.

DasBunker2930d ago

the door is always open.. nothing is stopping you to leave to an xbox circle jerk site, you might enjoy it more over there.

MysticStrummer2930d ago

If that's true, and I'm not sure it is, it used to be the exact opposite here. Times change, and what goes around comes around.

acky12930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

I'd rather news4gamers was for gamers, I joined it thinking most biased reasoning would be left at the open door.

DasBunker2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

lol not even "professional journalism" leaves the bias-ness at the door.. controversy is what gives them hits.

Moentjers2930d ago

@acky1

you should have been here when the PS3 came out :-/

visualb2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

you sound so bothered by something so trivial its quite pathetic.

whats the point of the comment? you are actually complaining about people expressing their over adulation for a company

read your complaint,
look in the mirror
then read your complaint again
then switch off your computer, and go outside, and get some fresh air.

seriously. Move is sold out in some retailers. Some people randomly congratulate the company. WOW!-_-

acky12930d ago

I am getting so much abuse for being level headed.

I love my ps3. I've had years of fun with it. MGS4 is the main reason I bought one and boy was that worth it...fantastic game. Also enjoyed tonnes of other games on it like COD4, Uncharted, Bioshock and the rest.

I will be getting Move, holding out right now cos I hope someone will be kind enough to buy me it for my birthday but if not, I'll get it after with Heavy Rain n Resi 5.

I really don't think it's me who needs to look at myself. If Sony does something rubbish, I question them, on the other hand if they get something good sorted out (like LoveFilm) I am happy, but not for Sony, for me. I really don't understand the allegiance some people have to a faceless company.

I've been sick to death of the awful attitude of the ps3 fans on here which recently has really started to annoy me. It's the kind of way you'd expect to see football casuals acting or catholics n protestants....but not gamers. It gets pretty serious in some of these discussion threads over the simplest of jokes or obvious trolling statement. People need to lighten up.

bustamove2930d ago

AND YET 360 FANBOYS DO THE SAME THING.

Leave if you have a problem with the 'PS3 fanboys' here.
