Sony last week announced that their month old motion control device has shipped a million units since launch and many people have quickly jumped to take sides; either applauding this or ridiculing it. Strangely both points are valid. - JPS
They predicted 3-4 million sold by the end of the year and they're already at 2.5. It's not even released in the land of the rising sun yet. They're way ahead of schedule. TGSI
With NPD no longer reporting sales numbers shipped numbers are all we are going to get.
2.5 shipped to retail, Sony sell their stock to retailers, Retailers buy stock based on demand, Move is sold out everywhere, 1+1 = 2.
and it's not even holiday season just yet ! and i believe that 90% of hardcore gamers , ps3 owners out there are still waiting for a real game to come out that support move . Sport Champion to me feels more like a technical demo than a game . Move is on track for success , let's hope that they can keep the momentum .
No one is in the business of stockpiling Move. The whole reason retailers are ordering it is so they can sell it. If it's sold out everywhere - obviously shipped/sold doesn't matter. They're all sold.
where liars lie bluntly without any shy or shame! this site (justpushstart.com) must be reported for reporting false information! Sony has already reported a 2.5 million unit shipped with many stores run out of stock! and Sony has yet to report how many shipped controller were sold to Japan! if the article was referring to USA alone, then the writer should make this clear! otherwise its called misleading information!
@TheBlackSmoke Sold out everywhere? Everywhere besides where i am at i guess. Maybe i should buy a bunch and put them up on ebay....hmmmmmm.
I called a few of major retailers in my area to get price quotes on Move bundles and ALL OF THEM still had PS Move stock. All the people that are equating Shipped=Sold need to reconsider their drug habits. Drugs are bad, mmkay?
I agree with you; I just hope the come out with more games for this bad-boy. Once you seat down and play it, you'll see what's all about. SONY has done a great job with the hardware --again, I just hope the software gets here fast.
It's not even released in the land of the rising sun yet yes it is
sometimes I get scared with this numbers as it seems like people care more about hardware accessories as opposed to many games that have been released so far.
Well said. I am enjoying Move for the most part. Some of the demo's are mediocre, but Sports Champions works extremely well, and RE5 was actually quite awesome with Move. It's a great compliment to the rest of my gaming setup.
The question makes it sound like its not going to sell any more.
1 Million PlayStation Moves Shipped
1 Millionz Playstation Ships Move
Ships 1 Million Move Playstation
Move 1 million playstation ships
Id call you something bad, but that would just insult the word id want to use. Do you honestly thing there's a million units just sitting on store shelves or in warehouses? When I finally paid off my preorder for Move the only thing I could take home was the Nav as the Move itself was soldout.
when i heard it i thought thats not alot then i thought well it is just another way to play the game (a controller) so i would say 2 million for a controller in 1 month isn't bad lol
i wish America wouldn't keep talking in the singular as if they represent the global figure. 'is 1 million + 1.5 million moves shipped good enough' simple answer: more than good enough
Its not that good considering how big the install base is
and the fact it seems to only be sold to their existing customers. PS3 sales remain flat.
not true 11th sept ww sales = 131,000 18th " " = 169,000 25th " " = 185,000 2nd oct ww sales = 171,000 9th " " = 158,000 16th " " = 156,000 move was released the 17th. You do the math. Source http://www.vgchartz.com/wee...
Also August 2010 NPD usa sales = 226,000 Sept " " = 312,000 Move released in September. You do the math. Source 1; http://www.vg247.com/2010/0... Source 2; http://www.digital-digest.c...
you joined 5 hours ago multi account xbox troll. LOL
You have not been here long yourself.....
yeah i know. lol. my first post wasnt troll infected though
O please, this is sales for a peripheral not a game. 2.5 million moves sold in a month is phenomenal. Even the all mighty Halo 3 which is the only reason the 360 exists has sold 11 million out of a 43 million install base, You're logic is so stupid, hence why you have 1 bubble.
@Sweeper Are you kidding? 1 million is nearly 10% of the installed US base. In ONE month. That's practically a miracle for a peripheral made 4 years after the console launch.
Well it is all good regardless. But most of sale are to the same users buying more then one. I have several friends including myself that bought 2 wands and a nav.
...a genuine AAA must have game that is best played with Move then sales will sky rocket. I myself already have two plus the nav controller. Challenging my son to table tennis has been worth the asking price alone.
2k11 sold well heavy rain is a great game MAG is a okay FPS lol isn't that enough for you people? dont exspect much sorcery looks great and fun but reviews will tare it up for its screen tearing and bad graphics that will easily take off 2 points now i know it was alpha footage but i doubt it will look alot better then that imo sorcery will be high AA so it does not look like we will be getting a AAA game for move anytime soon so sit back and wait hopefully games like uncharted will suport move
...2k11 or MAG and neither are what you'd consider AAA. Heavy Rain is a solid game but not sure I thought it was any better with Move or not. It's not that "must have" game either.
by christmas sony will SHIP 4 millions units...but how many will be sold? with Kinect selling everywhere
>by christmas MS will SHIP many Kinect units...but how many will be sold? See how that works? TROLL.
Doesnt matter if it ships it is sold right?
Kinect is garbage and isn't selling anywhere yet.
It's not a console sold at a loss with the intention to make money off of games sold to an installed base! Sold or shipped is meaningless, they are selling for money and the retailer is paying!
sony mean move for long term addition for game like killzone and infamous. possibly it gives chance for developer to create game that limited to wii hardware. but want to use motion controller (essentially stealing wii third party developer) as example on dead space and no more hero. possibly we see epic mikey on ps3. it probably continue sell around 0.5-1 million per month for 1-2 years.
This Christmas Santa shipped out 5 million toys but only 10 kids got em. Same thing here Sony shipped 1 million to NA and SA but only 100k actually bought it.
If its not selling more PS3s its not enough.
The month playstation move was released it had outsold the wii that month.
well i that case you just got owned ps3 sales was at around the 120k range before move and now ps3 is 5k within beating 360 to a pulp and much quicker than the 360 got close to the ps3 slim sales wise, next week all us ps3 fans will be laughing because 40k ps3's are predicted sales wise in japan, that means ps3 should be ahead by at least 15k next week
Shipped isn't "Sold" IMHO. Also, they are counting every PS Eye, Nunchuk and Wand as a separate "Move sale" which explains the slightly higher numbers yet low numbers on actual Move games.
oh, could you show me where they have said that please i can see tears this Christmas for 360 fans below: so tell me, why would anyone buy a Nav controller without the MOVE? pray tell oh intelligent one
It explains the shifty numbers. 2.5 million unique user's didn't buy PS Move. More like I'd guess anyway around 750K and then those people either bought a Nunchuk or separate wand or both.
Oh my. It's NEwS to me that the nav counts as a MOVE lol. Go hide under your bridge and stop coming in all PS articles.
In accounting it does count as sold units. Sony sold 2.5 million to retailers. Now it's up to the retailers to sell them to customers. Retailers wouldn't have bought so much if it was an item that will sit there for a while. So far, I've seen little available units on shelves so I'm guessing they are selling just fine.
Are you totally delusional?? In any case while Move controller stocks in my area of Atlanta were non existent for a good 2 weeks...the camera and nav controller were looking lonely on the racks...because the Move controller was sold out as was the bundles. I am really liking Move and picked up a 2nd now the stores have restocked this week. I do forsee nav controllers getting a discount come Black Friday though and if so I will be bagging one toot sweet
Shipped not sold.
Pachter: "Even though we believe Move sold well below expectations in its first month, we expect it, along with the Kinect (launching November 4), to drive hardware sales at holiday," Adter Sony data: "It's ahead of what I thought previously," he said, and he thinks "they are a lock to sell 3 to 4 million by Dec. 31, and a lock to hit more than 5 million by fiscal year end." Bomba, right? MS fanboys live in denial
To All the 360 fanboys are screaming "SHIPPED!!" Its hilarious. Move sold way more and faster than people expected it. Simple and plain. Even patcher admitted fault.
MS only do shipped numbers you stupid people.They call it "sold"but it means sold to retailers.Jesus.The numbers you get from MS will be shipped for Kinect and they'll count all the ones they give away too.1 million shipped is ok and user base is only 13 million in the US vs 22 million 360s.Now go look at game sales figures for US and realise that in the last 2 years PS3 attach rates for games are much higher than 360 there.
MS do only do shipped numbers. But so do Sony, Nintendo, Apple, Adidas, Nike etc etc. Your post makes you seem like the stupid one. I don't know where this shipped vs sold became such a big deal. Move has sold well. Sony have said they have sold 2.5 million and seeing as its in short supply we must assume most of those have gone from the retailers to the consumers. Move has done well.
People against Move success seem to be pointing to shipped being an issue and since 360 fanboys on here always talk about "sales" the hypocrisy was worth pointing out.Not stupid at all. I own Move and I'm very impressed with the hardware,along with Sports Champions and Tumble.
Only 1 Million shipped.. and SOny also includss the PS eye in it... shame, bad numbers. Kinect will ship 1 Million in one week. Sony sold so far ~180k units in USA.
This number comes from your ass?
It's also the number of times his avatar came true... ... this week alone.
lol your soon to be a 1 bubble joker...you best set up a new account fast. Mind you it may take you away from leering at pictures of Bill Gates
i fell like in launch day Kinect will pas move!
360 fanboys in butthurt mode, whats new? EDIT: ManiacMansion, an example of a 360 fanboy in butthurt mode.
"Michael Pachter admitted that PS3 Move sales have exceeded his expectations and has now predicted that Sony will move more than five million devices by the end of the fiscal year. House also stated that demand has been outstripping supply in Europe prompting SCEE to ramp up manufacturing for that territory." http://gamer.blorge.com/201... In September to October, excluding Japan sales will be around 2.5 Million SOLD. Including Japan most likely 3 Millions SOLD. By the end of December it will be around 5-6 Million SOLD. Kinect will most likely sell around 3-4 Million by the end of December 2010. But that will just be the beginning. What games will be available. I don't think anyone plans on buying 5 fitness titles and 5 dance titles and 5 party titles. Not all games will be a good fit for motion controls. GT5 will want a steering wheel. MS is hyping Kinect too much. I am comfortable that Sony will not try to force all games to have Move support just for the sake of it. I am looking forward to Tennis, Cricket, Sword Fighting and Golf for Move.
PS3 fanboys in "Excuse mode"... nothing new!
Buh Buh teh Kinect is better hardware den move becoz.....ummm....teh salez!!!
And i will buy 2 more controlers when the fight is released.
Okay first of all sales matter too but they are not as important as people think. Okami was awesome and it barely sold. I care more about Move being a solid controller and having functional games but sales also mean more people to play with and continued support. Secondly even if Sony SHIPPED 1 million, you do realize it is being sold out. So if they SHIPPED 1 million and there are shortages and backorders that means a million wasn't enough. Sony themselves said that they have to make more to satisfy demand, meaning it could be even more than a million sold. Finally Zir0 and 0oAngeluso0 could you do us all a favour and get lost. Stop the Move trolling. We will stay off Kinect article if you kindly stay off of ours. @ ManiacMansion. can't wait to hear all the excuses 360 fanboys make when Kinect games get lower then average scores or Kinect sells less than 5 million.
2.5 MILLION SOLD, kinect has no chance
move shipped 2.5 million worldwide, most of those are guaranteed to be sold with shortages pretty much everywhere and sony having to ramp up production that is a huge success, not to mention profit is made per unit, now an we stop it with all the hate threads??
this is a mill in us :)
