Move 'technically' sells over 1 Million

Post by SlySonji™ on Wed Oct 13, 2010 8:07 pm

Following a solid initial launch, VGChartz can reveal that as of October 9th over 470,000 units of Move hardware have now been sold in the Americas and EMEAA. Another statistic of interest is that over 600,000 individual Move controllers have now been sold in total (bundles and stand-alone), 130,000 of which are serving as 2nd, 3rd or 4th controllers for the 470,000 unique Move customers. Around 42% of Move sales are coming from the Americas with the remainder from EMEAA.

Sports Champions (bundled with the Move pack in America and with some hardware packs in Europe) has now sold over 380,000 copies, still selling at over an 80% attach rate and the key driver for initial Move hardware sales.

Stay tuned to VGChartz for the latest PlayStation Move sales news.

Count the individual controllers and that is well over 1 Million. Seems to be doing better than expected! And this is without a strong library of games. Over 2 Million units by the end of the year anyone? Also, Amazon Germany has been selling it for 42% more than the original price and it is still sold out.

Wait, how did you get 1 million out of this? It says 600,000 move controllers have been sold in total with bundles and stand alone to about 470,000 customers.

But Cyber, Reaper, I THOUGHT VGCHARTZ WAS INACCURATE!!! Silly

600,000 INDIVIDUAL Move controllers have been sold + the 470k bundles that have been sold. The individual move controllers and the bundles are counted seperately.

PlayStation Move Sold Over 1.5 Million Units In Europe

Move has had “very significant sales in the first month since launch, somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe,” House said. “The initial sales response has been so far in excess of our initial plan that we’ll probably be looking at accelerating production.”

Sony Ships 1 Million Move Controllers

Nearly one month after its release, Sony says it has shipped over 1 million units of the PlayStation Move controller in North and Latin America.

"Retail demand is incredibly strong and we're working hard to keep the product in stock," said Jack Tretton, Chief Executive Officer, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "We believe consumers have already shown their preference for a precise, interactive game experience.

"We are on target to meet our end of year goals and expect sales to increase as our publishers and developers continue to update popular titles and introduce new games."

Sony did not disclose actual sales figures. Previous analyst estimates indicate, however, that Move U.S. sales were around 300,000 units in September.

In a separate report from last week, a Sony Europe spokesperson said the company sold 1.5 million in Europe during the launch month.

With the console game market scoring depressingly low sales in recent months, Sony's announcement that it has shipped 2.5 million of its PlayStation 3 Move wireless controllers may be a welcomed reprieve from the relentless drumbeat of bad news.

The company said Thursday that it had shipped 1 million Move controllers in the U.S. and Canada, plus 1.5 million units in Europe, since launching the device Sept. 19. (Move has not yet launched in Asia.) The wireless device, which sells for $50 and up, lets players control their actions within video games by moving their arms, much like the Nintendo Wii remote.

The combined sales exceeded some analysts' expectations.

"It's ahead of what I thought previously," said Michael Pachter, an analyst with Wedbush Securities. "I think that 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" on March 31.

Although Sony's numbers are for controllers it had shipped to stores, there's a good chance that many of them, if not all, have sold. Many stores sell out of the devices as soon as they're received, said John Koller, director of hardware marketing for Sony's PlayStation business in Foster City, Calif.

"There's minimal on-hand inventory in many stores," Koller said. "We're basically shipping every unit we can make."

That's counter to what some have speculated about the robustness of Move sales prior to Sony's announcement.

Koller credits the brisk sales to the diverse lineup of 24 games that use Move, including iPets for kids, Time Crisis: Razing Storm for hard-core players and Start the Party for families and casual players. Sony expects another 15 Move-enabled titles to come online by March 31, which it hopes will prompt the overall console to get a move on.
