Report: PS Move has sold nine million

on 24 November 2011

IndustryGamers reports that PlayStation Move has sold nine million units worldwide, putting it within striking distance of Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral. 

Sony’s motion-sensing controller has been selling at a steady pace since its launch in September 2010, while Kinect got off to a flying start with eight million units shifted in just two months. However, sales soon stalled at 10 million back in March.

"The Kinect's weakness has been the sales pattern, where 8 million devices sold in 2 months, and then in the next 10 months only 2 million more devices were sold. This has led to some concerns,” commented IndustryGamers’ Steve Peterson. 

Sony last issued a sales update for PlayStation Move back at E3 in June, where it confirmed the device had moved at approximately 8.8 million.

A number of high-profile games have already made use of the tech, including Killzone 3, PlayStation Move Heroes and Heavy Rain.
