Quoting Movemodo's James Newton: "It's not just Kinect selling out at Amazon – Move is also in short supply on the major retailer's site, resulting in price increases and stock limitations."
i still think Kinect will sell more than MOVE, but i reckon it's going to be closer than people think. MOVE has already sold 3 million, maybe 3.5 by now @Get2sammyb. i agree with that. i also think that support is crucial for both the MOVE and Kinect, and it's easy to see that the MOVE has a big advantage here. not only can it get Wii ports and MOVE specific games, but it will also get multiplats (with Wii not 360). this could leave Kinect out in the cold and you never know, we may actually see some Kinect games on MOVE too.
I still feel like Move will have legs. Kinect will outsell it this holiday no doubt, but unless Microsoft is really willing to go wild funding crazy ideas, I can't see Kinect offering a lot of variety over the next 12 months. Just by looking at Kinect's launch line-up you can see its strengths lie in fitness and dancing games. I daresay those games are fun, but without anything else to its name it will struggle to continue pulling people in after the novelty has died down. The same of course applies to Move, but I do feel like its integration with games such as Killzone 3, LittleBigPlanet 2 and its application in a variety of experiences (not all Move titles are brilliant, but there's a good chunk of variety out there) mean it should continue selling at a steady pace. To be honest, so long as they are both successful enough to benefit the support of developers, it doesn't really matter which is more successful.
kinect doesn't have good games but move will have killzone 2 - little big planet 2 - sorcery - and alots of good games ..... we just have to wait and see :P .. move is good but it just need games but kinect is a bad idea ...
Don't know what to think of this i mean its sell well but not crazy bonkers one reason for it selling out is because sony always stated it was an add on to the ps3 so did't make a bizzillion of then (slightly ott there lol) or there just trying to make it look like its in crazy demand by holding back what they have made so people think its the next big thing cause its sold out everywhere MS and kinect have no excuse thought that supposed to launch bigger then the 360 did how can it be sold out before its out :S oh and before any says im trying to flame im not its just what came to mind and i raised it in a comment here
Seen the numbers 1+MIL sold in the US and 1.5+Mil sold in EU first month only that doesnt look like holding back to me. It still sold out means they are on track to sell 5mil before the year ends. Thats a shit load of Move MS doesnt expect to sell more than 3mil Kinect.
Ya know, I've seen looks on peoples' faces that say "I'm actually genuinely impressed at this tech", when they play PlayStation Move demo kits, and that's just when they try ping pong or archery! People pick it up and play it naturally, and it just works. There may be a simple calibration required, but after that, you follow simple instructions and after a minute people are plucking and firing arrows and putting top spin on ping pong balls like nobody's business! People like Move because it works and it works WELL. +1 to Move reputation
I am not sure Kinect will be accurate.But it may sell well.
MOVIN on up...to the east side....
I've been trying to buy a second Move controller for 2 weeks without success. Out of stock or prices up to 50% higher than RRP.
a hell of a lot cheaper and in stock
its a big fail on sony's part. They should fire the people that do their sales forecast/estimate.
ppl play it they want it, and for 39.99 u cant blame em for the starter pack.
it's that simple
are less likely to listen to ads compare to Americans.
US need the kinect dude, all those fatty's need to move a little
She says they have 4 or 5 people coming in for the Move daily, but they only don't have the stock to supply them, with only 1 available basically. She said they know it as, "The Wii, but better". So I guess Sony's marketing is working over here somehow? :P
Normal. A lot of people in Europe are buying stuff in UK because of the better prices... No surprise here.
just becuase ps move or kinect sells out does not mean there needs to be a story about.
This is also true. Things can sell out for a number of reasons. Though generally it's a good thing if things are selling out, it can also be down to restricted stock. I do think in Move's case it's genuinely doing well. Same for Kinect. They both seem to be doing better than I expected.
I actually got lucky today and walked into a local Target and they had just gotten a new shipment. I walked out with 10 move controllers after calling all my friends that we needing them.
I've been trying to get a move sub controller for a few weeks at my local Kmart, but they have been sold out. They have had varying numbers of move controllers and starter bundles. Sometimes they are out. Sometimes there are a 1 or 2 in stock.
its not sold out get ur facts right please poster.
