Move Sells Over 4.1 Million Units

Forums - Sales Discussion - Move Sells Over 4.1 Million Units

This announcement seems to mark how many combo packs and single sticks that Sony has shipped to retail in preparation for the holiday season.

Since most people are probably buying at least 2 of these items, the 4.1M number is at least 2x the expected user base by the end of the year.

However, Sony may have been too late in getting items to market as the eBay sales and apparently unavailability of the controllers at retail means that demand is outstripping supply.

its funny how this is shipped lol

just how they lied to us before, face it going by the numbers they sold last month 1 million(which was shipped)

I doubt they sold 3 million in another one, face it kinect so far has been selling better


What does Kinect sales have to do with this?

Also explain the Move controllers selling for much higher than retail on sites like Amazon and eBay.

 

How are these numbers lying? You saying they didn't really ship 4.1M?

 

I don't get the point of your post at all.

sony is sugar coating us again by simply going by shipped numbers and not revealing actual sold move units

so going by this logic MS could have said that kinect sold 5 or whatever amount of  million kinects instead of 2.5

It's defiantly because they are "sugar coating" us.  Especially since EVERY TIME Sony releases shipped numbers, they are clearly just "sugar coating" us.  I begin to wonder how many hundred's of additional PS3's every single store has in stock across the world since Sony is clearly forcing these retailers to buy more and more.

You think Sony gives a flying sh*t about how many PS Moves we think they sold?

 you do know that if it doesnt have a big userbase many people wont buy the move, which in turn wont bring any 3rd party support, which in turn = failure right?? 

Then I guess it is a good thing the Move has games coming huh?

THQ for example just announced that they are making (2) Move titles, both being "Core" titles too.

I find it incredibly hilarious SONY is somehow "sugar coating" things due to shipments.....fact is, it wouldn't be shipped if there wasn't demand.

SONY can't just roll a truck of Moves or PS3's up to Walmart and say, "F*** you, you're taking them!!!!"

It just doesn't work like that!!!!

I still don't see how anyone can be comfortable with how Sony is reporting sales for Move.  Well, unless you really are a hardcore fanboy that doesn't value sustainable success.

I believe vgchartz says it is more like 1.6 or 1.7 Move controllers per user/group of users.

Oh yea, it's obvious Sony tells the retailers they need to buy more and more or they will no longer sell them their ps3 games, their tvs, their blu ray players, their dvd players, etc. etc.
