Sony has only given move numbers in direct responce to MS giving Kinect numbers, something which we haven't seen (it's being tracked but MS hasn't made any annoucements)

I think MS are holding off the showboating till Kinect crosses the 10M mark. Although MS did release the 8m shipment data at the end of the year whereas there was no word from Move.

Kinect sales are droping pretty fast, partly because it got an artificial boost from massive commericials and the holiday, it was launched at the best time to make the most sales in a short time but I just don't see it's sales holding very high so maybe MS doesn't want to draw attention to the fact that the sales are dropping and frankly I don't think Sony cares about showboating at all they like the sales and have mentioned it's a slow burn unlike kinect 

Define this "artificial" sales you talk about in regards to Kinect? Regardless of advertising or not, sales are sales. I've also seen a lot of commercials for Move... so I'm assuming that's artificial too? What about when games are marketed on TV a lot? Is that artificial?



Everyone needs to play Lost Odyssey! Any opposition to this and I will have to just say, "If it's a fight you want, you got it!"

not artificial sales, artificial inflatement of sales and yes move had some artificial inflament around the holidays too everything does but not as much as kinect 



acording to VGchartz data there should be arround 3 million move-capable systems out there(not controllers)



I think it is probably because it is a controller, no need to continually report numbers for it.

As long as the Move titles keep coming from SONY we can be pretty confident that the sales are just fine.

 

It's not a contest.

Sony presented Move more to hardcore gamers than casual ones. As such, I don't believe the sales will go up before there is substantial software support. That said, I just brought mine today.

Haha, knew this thread would give you the hump, you instantly jump to "contest".

Whether you like it or not this site reports Kinect vs Move numbers, so deal with it. The majority of people want them here whether good or bad, that's why we're here, it's a sales site.

I'm sure Sony will support move no matter what numbers its doing, and I'm sure the likely hood is that move numbers ARE fine. So what? Doesn't mean I don't want to know just because the numbers are good :-S

I think you should check where you are.



 

Because it's bad, that's why they havent released any software numbers except they ship 10 millions more last quater than they ever did this Generation. Just terrible numbers they don't want to release.

I wouldn't say 4.1 by Nov is bad, and the likely hood is they've surpassed 6 mill by Dec, so that's not a good enough excuse saying they're bad when they're not, not that you're genuine about that anyhow.

MS don't really brag about Kinect SW either ..... so don't see why Sony would either.

Knew this thread would draw me in? Glad I am so important that I am always on your mind Seece.

Then I remember that you had the nerve to say that I make threads with the intent to stir up users.

 

How about realizing that I am making a reasonable point and arguing that?

Regardless of what you think Seece, I have no agenda, I only respond as I see it. 

 

I have better things to do than get worked up about sales that affect me in no way what so ever. If they bear meaning on your life, more power to you.
