PS3's Move 'Off to a Good Start,' says Analyst

 

Both Sony and Microsoft are vying for a piece of the motion controls market this holiday season. The PlayStation Move has been out for several weeks already, and Microsoft Kinect motion camera is fast approaching. According to a new survey of U.S. consumers by Lazard Capital Markets, interest in both motion devices is actually high. 

"Our survey...suggests there is strong demand for both the Kinect and Sony Move motion controllers. We are somewhat surprised by the positive reaction given the relatively high price points ($149 for Kinect and $99 and up for Move) and the lack of many compatible games for the devices. We believe that Sony’s Move is off to a good start at retail, with limited supplies, and our survey also bodes well for the launch of Kinect," analyst Colin Sebastian said.

He continued, "We note that primary beneficiaries of a strong launch of Kinect include retailer GameStop, which we expect will garner strong market share; platform holder Microsoft, with potentially a boost in popularity for the Xbox ecosystem; and third, ultimately the software publishers, which will be able to sell games made for the new devices. We continue to expect sales of up to four million units through the end of the year for Kinect — although Microsoft recently expressed a goal of selling at least three million units. Lastly, an optimistic view of the new controllers would also assume that the current console cycle can extend another 3-4 years before platform holders need to bring new console hardware to the market."

4 million for Kinect this year is about in line with my expectations too. I think about 1-1.5 million for move. It's good to see motion controls doing well. I do admit I am a huge fan of them.



i don't need a new console for another 10 yrs.

 good news for the 2 controlers



still depend on better software next if they wanna keep it's leg strong

we will see which can do better on that

of cause developers is very important in this case



I'm currently having too much fun with Flight Control HD to care about anything else right now but the Move needs a stronger software selection I think.

No chance, Kinect is hugely expensive and Move, that's somewhat possible. I believe Kinect will sell less then Move for a while because of price and Moves head start.

I feel that given the preorder data we have and Microsoft's own expectations (which will be based on extensive research)  it would be unreasonable to assume that Kinect will sell less than 3 million this year. I have the same intuitive response that the Kinect price is steep but I think if you look at the data objectively it's hard to come to the conclusion that it will initially sell less than move.

Long term sales are a different matter though ;p

i think kinect will move larger numbers due to its marketing from the start. but move will keep selling good and with good software could be a hot peripheral to purchase for ps3 owners.

Yeah, Kinect will sell best overall. The fact that people havn't seen a camera like this before (on in a while) means they want it. It's kinda hitting Sony hard, if they pushed the Eye alot more they could easily be ahead in motion controlling.
