It seems that Sony settled on the right name for its PlayStation Move
motion controller, as the company is definitely moving
plenty of units in Europe. Speaking to Bloomberg
, Sony Europe's Andrew House noted "very significant sales" for the Move, saying that it has sold "somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe." He added that sales have exceeded Sony's original hopes, and that the company will likely increase production of the peripheral.
Sales may not be as motivated
in America, however. In a report released to the media, Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter
estimated that the motion controller sold around 300,000 units in its US debut, including Move console bundles; though it's important to note that SCEA has not released official sales figures. Despite the sluggish launch estimate, Pachter expects both the Move and Kinect
to drive console sales in the US this holiday season.
