PlayStation Move: First PS3 Sales Figures

Yesterday we revealed that Sony believed that the Kinect hype helped to promote PlayStation Move, now we have some early sales figures which reveal some pretty impressive figures.

We are reliably informed that in total roughly 60,000 units of Move hardware were sold in America last week, a unit is classed as a Move Controller plus PlayStation Eye Camera.

Apparently in Europe around 80,000 units were sold last week, this brings the worldwide total to roughly 140,000 units.

As for software we are old that 100,000 copies of Sports Champions have been sold, if you want a full breakdown of the sale you should check out this link.

These figures are in my opinion pretty promising, I’m sure that as more Move games are released sales will continue steadily, it will be interesting to see how Kinect sales compare.

Did you think that Sony would sell more units?

seriously people need to relax and enjoy all three systems like i do. I find faults in the move just like the wiimote and the kinect. But there are good in all three. Seriously, it stupid to nag nag nag about stupid shit like "oh it's got a one second delay" or hearing people say "well PS3 has better games than the wii or the 360."I play them all and i enjoy them all. Metroid and Zelda for the Wii, Halo for the 360, and Fear for the PS3. People need to stop complaining and enjoy all three systems cuz… Read more »

I don't think people want to stand there in a room shouting commands to the TV jogging on the spot, jumping up and down and kicking all day. People want something to hold. I think the 360 has a lot more hype because "everyone else" has one but the PS3 is deffo better. People will buy the Kinect and not use it after a couple of weeks because it goes against what fat lazy dole dossers stand for

Can someone answer this? I understand that the navigator does not have motion sensing capabilities. So I'm assuming you will be limited to one motion sensing controller if a game implements the navigator for moving one's character around. If so, isn't this a big flaw in this set-up in comparison to the Wii? You can never have, for example, a game that controls a sword AND a shield if it involves walking and exploring a game map, unless you have to keep switching controllers. I really don't know why Sony wouldn't implement motion control in it's companion controller.

@Andrew What are you talking about? Middle of the road tech? The Move is much more advanced that the wii with it’s motion plus. The Move has similar internal components as the wii but surpasses it with even move sensors built into the Move controller. Move uses a camera to detect your position in 3D space and has a component that allows for the controller to be detected even if the camera cannot see it. Kinect is just an updated Eyetoy. If you’ve ever played with the eyetoy you’d know how frustrating controller-less movements are. If your buying the Kinect… Read more »

The move is dated tech, its basically a wii w better graphics and a much smaller selection of games. What ppl don’t realize is that with wii motion plus you get the same 1 to 1 responsiveness that the Move gives you. Kinect however is a real game changer. Controllerless gaming with voice controls built it. I don’t understand why anyone would bother with this middle of the road unnecessary piece of tech.

Impressive sales figures? Come on – there's a reason why Sony didn't advertise Move and there's a reason why words like "slow burn" are being used. Plus, no gamer , or man, wants to play with something that looks like a lollipop. Well – not most men.

The sales are much lower than expected, the Kinect PRE ORDERS in NA alone are almost the same as the whole worldwide total of Moves sales and it's not even out yet……….

I got the PS Move on Thursday just before it's release, and it's a really big game changer; the potential is massive unlike the the Wii, which didn't respond to your movements correctly. I'm partially paralysed on my left side, and wasn't able to get a good grip on the Wii-Numchuck which made most game's pretty boring and unplayable as I just kept struggling to move and continually dropped the controller. However the shape of the PS Move sub controller was perfect and I've not struggled to use it, that was my biggest concern when I pre-ordered it. As for… Read more »
