American Move Launch Game Sales Look a Little Meagre


As Sony's flagship title for Move, Sports Champions has been at the forefront of the company's efforts to put motion control in the hands of gamers and non-gamers alike. That's why it's so surprising to see it beaten in the software sales charts by EyePet: Move Edition, with the cuddly critter taking the top spot in standalone software sales across America.

So no one brought any games with their Move purchase? All the launch titles are under 20,000 yet it sold 1ml?

Something isn't right here.

Heavy Rain, RE5 Gold, MAG and maybe few more existing DualShock games can be patched to support Move.

Count their sales.

Cratos87803007d ago (Edited 3007d ago )

also Sport Champion's 20,000 sales is EXCLUDING hardware and accessory bundles.

And Eyepet sold more than 20,000, but we don't know how much.

Read the article properly.

Edit: lol @ the disagrees.

Move was not aim at one particular demographic. It's aimed for everyone. Thats why you will never see one particular game focused on one type of gamer sold much more than the others. It's spread evenly.

Move is not the wii. Once you get over that fact you will be a bit wiser.

Also, the 1 million has already been clarified as shipped.

Im going to go with gamers are playing the core games that got patched instead of the casual ones.

Don't the media have better things to worry about then what games sold what?

shutupandplay3007d ago

Nah, it adds up.

First of all, the numbers we have heard are shipped, not sold. Second, people who actually buy it may buy more than one controller.

Move`s success is simply an illusion, where as Kinect will see true success.

tinybigman3007d ago

Playing on rails and extreme shovelware is true success lol.

N4Great3007d ago

shut up, and play (with your brain, all the games, even kinect one, will be good enough)

Sorry man! But read the article again. Since the Moves launch we already have preliminary numbers of 350,000+ Move bundles sold in the first few weeks in the USA only (over 100,000 Sports Champions in the first week world wide)! This bundle INCLUDES Sports Champions, which is the basic starter game.

Please stop acting like consumers aren't able to read display signs that show bundles that INCLUDES Sports Champions next to the standalone game. This is because new consumers to the Move was just release and they don't own any controllers or PS Eye. Even as the years go on Sports Champion will be a game that will be included in the bundle, so standalone sales for that game will always be a secondary option. That's all this article is pointing out.

As far as Kung-Fu Rider!? Meh! I don't care about that game! I prefer Tumble (PSN download) and in the future Sorcery!

Hey! Lets report on standalone sales when we know that the same game is included in the bundle! /sarcasm

"Gamasutra reports that around 20,000 copies of Sports Champions (STANDALONE) were sold in North America in September, but bear in mind this doesn't include copies sold with the Starter Pack or the 320GB hardware deal"

The real games will compete against Kinect in December: Heavy Rain Move Edition, Time Crisis, Sly Cooper. Plus more in 2011. Microsoft, Kinect better be able to bring it!

Sony should market Heavy Rain w/ Move to the Oprah crowd.

You can take a dump in a lunch bag and Oprah's crowd would still eat it up

Apocalypse Shadow3007d ago

piss in a bottle and Oprah could sell it like corona.

MajestieBeast3007d ago

I dunno who are more retarted scientology followers or Oprah fans.

Bigpappy3007d ago

People who are her fans trust her because they see her as honest and trust worthy. Oprah is one of the most respected personalities in the media, at a time where the media can't be trusted. Oprah is known for giving hot items to her audience.

Godmars2903007d ago

Can only wonder if Kinect numbers come in anywhere close to Move's will the current people attacking Move's sales apply the same to Kinect.

cmrbe3007d ago

I thought it might be Sports Champion.
