    Playstation Move sells 2.5 Million Units Worldwide in 30 days.

    Sony Computer Entertainment America has finally provided a sales number for its first month of PlayStation Move sales: 1 million units. The company previously said the motion controller was selling "extremely well," but failed to give data. In Europe, SCEE said that Move had sold 1.5 million units. SCEA boss Jack Tretton has noted that Move is in very high demand, and currently demand for Move is ahead of supply. Sony actually doesn't expect to have enough supply to meet the demand until February. "We had to go back and increase production twice, we're absolutely maxed out right now," Tretton said, according to Reuters.
    Source.

    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.

    Playstation Move launched today in Japan too. Those numbers will be interesting viewing.

    Why do you care so much about what Xbox fanboys have to say? Plus 95 percent of the members at N4G actually seem to be PS3 fanboys. At least judging by the type of ignorant comments in their news section as well as the type of 'articles' that get submitted and approved over there. Even fanboy blogs are posted as 'news' at N4G. That place is a joke.

    I found it funny how the first sentence of your post was giving him crap about caring about fanboy wars, then the rest of your post dissolved into a fanboy rant.

    As for Move. Did better than I thought for sure. Would like to see more Move only type games though, since this tech is supposed to push things forward. Games like MAG/SOCOM/KZ3 that have Move options is nice and cool, but I want to see creative use. More games like Sorcery or echochrome ii.

    The sales numbers are pretty good but I like to believe the number is about half (if not less) of those sales figures are actually people buying Move. Well, their buying Moves, but you'll get the idea.

    With games, consoles, even Kinect, you buy 1 and your set.

    With SONYS Move you don't buy 1 Move. You buy 2 or 3 or even 4 plus a nav controller or 2. SONYs pricing strategy for Move is very good, but its also a nice way to skew the numbers in their own favor if you think about it.

    Nonetheless, very good sales for SONY.

    So you're suggesting that on average every Move owner bought two Move's? Sure, there'll be plenty who bought two, but also plenty more who bought just one - myself included.

    Dasimpse makes an interesting point, but I doubt Sony could be so ingenuous as to claim every Move-related peripheral is a Move controller.

    I wouldn't say that's that amazing. What is a move? Is a navi controller a move sale? Like many have said. Every video I've seen is someone with atleast 2 and I have 4 personally and a charger. So yeh it might not actually be that amazing

    I know Sub-stance1 will be very surprised by these numbers. They exceed his expectations(300k) by over triple the amount.

    I'm glad Move is selling well. That means we'll see more and more support for it.

    Those are some good numbers for move. I did predict they would sell a million but not this fast:
    As for sales..It did pretty good in Europe and pretty much what i expected here in the states. They should be able to hit the million mark here pretty soon with the holidays.

    but you also said it wasn't doing as well as expected. so did you expect it to move 2.5 million units in 30 days even without being out in Japan?

    Nav sales don't count as Move sales. Nintendo don't count the nunchuck as a Wiimote sale.

    They aren't doing very well with keeping up with demand though. If they had the product on the shelves then it would be moving a lot more.

    Yup, I believe more individuals purchased multiple move controllers over those that purchased just one.

    As to whether Sony counts a nav controller as a move sale is anyone's guess until Sony confirms otherwise. Just because nintendo doesn't count nunchuks as Wii wand sales doesn't mean Sony doesn't count nav controllers as move sales.

    MS used count 360 replacements as sales (so Ive heard.) but Sony didn't. 2 diff companies.

    Hey, maybe Sony count all the chargers, 'sheaths' and plasticky gun things as Move controllers as well - well, it says Move on the packaging doesn't it?

    But the nav controller isn't called the Move so I think they are just talking about the Move controllers.

    it doesn't matter how many people buy because it's still a sale to Sony.

    Just what you said. Sony doesn't care how many you buy, they still count as a Move sold!

    A sales a sale. No denying that and the numbers themselves are good. Especially for a peripheral.

    I'm just pointing pointing out that the number may not quite be what it seams.

    While they do represent sales, unlike with consoles sales or games sales you can't look at the number and say 2.5 million sold so 2. 5 million people bout a move. I would think more along the lines of less then 1. 5 millionpeople did. Their sales strategy skews the nimbers in their favor.

    Faaeng, I agree with you - the sales numbers do not represent the number of Move-owning users but the number of Move controllers sold. Funnily enough, Sony aren't claiming this either, so it isn't fair to say their sales strategy skews the number in their favour; if people are foolish enough to assume that 2.5M sales = 2.5M unique Move owners then they need to think again.
