Is playstation MOVE being discontinued?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Is playstation MOVE being discontinued?

Sounds like these stores are trying to MOVE Sony's motion accessories off their shelves.



See what I did there?

It doesn't matter how the product got in customers hands? Oh this discussion is over. You take absolutely no other factors into consideration.

If Nintendo bundled a nugget of shit into every Wii box, I bet you'd argue there is a demand for shit nuggets.

For a long time they were NOT bundling it with Wiis and people were buying it, have you EVER seen Wii Sports REsort not in the top 40 since it was released??  So whats your explanation for that?? On the other hand we have Kinect that was heavily bundled with Xbox, but since its on Xbox there is a demand for that?? Which one is it?

I wasn't just talking about the Wii bundling. I was also talking about how Motion Plus is bundled with just about every copy of Wii Sports Resort. Hence, Motion Plus sold a ton because it has been distributed basically for free.

The Kinect on the other hand was never some cheap included accessory with a game or the console. The console bundles are a $100 more than the console a lone. Its also done a pretty good at selling other titles not bundled with it.


Ok i could kinda see where your going with that.

I could see how it is not a cheap accersory, but what Kinect titles have sold well? Outside of Dance Central and Kinect Sports, everything else has been meh. Which is ironic because those are the same types of games that sell well on Wii

Why is that ironic? MS clearly marketed Kinect to casual audiences which is an audience the 360 lacked. Wii is a console that appeals mostly to casual audiences.

So its not ironic that Wii and Kinect sell similar games well. It just shows casual gamers like those games.

Most probably Sony knows motion controls lost their initial hype and now people just accept them when they make sense. So the plan could be to just keep Move alive until it gets cheap enough to be bundled with consoles, starting since PS4 or the last revisions of PS3. PS4 should most probably receive a new version with a camera with depth detection, like Kinect, allowing hands-free games too with more possibilities than the original Eye Toy, by 2013 those cameras should be cheap enough. From then on devs could just choose whether use motion or classic controls or both, depending on which are most suitable, without having to worry about split user bases. Porting of motion control games from and to other platforms would become almost trouble free too.

The eytoy was irrelevant, a flop, and wasn't 3D. It was a glorified webcam and as such, I did not feel the need to list it.

I'm sure his point was a camera has been used for gaming before. But its not even in the same ball park when it comes to capabilities.

But for the record, Eyetoy sold quite well. Developers clearly couldn't do much with it though so it just went away.


That's what I meant by flop, I wasn't talking sales, I was talking support. I suppose i should have been clearer.

I hope it does get cut

I hope not it can do more.

But will it? Anyway, I highly doubt it will get cut.

Week ending 24-9 PS Move in America outsold Wii Balance Board and it sold just 20% less than Kinect (less than 3k difference). Elsewhere we can't know, as only in America Move is bundled with a game, Sports Champions, so when that game reenters the Top40, like has been doing recently, we can track HW better there. Nothing exceptional, but not too shabby.

Hopefully it's going to be phased out. This whole motion control thing is all but dead. The casual people who made it huge are long, long gone. In another few years the industry will be back in our hands, the hardcore gamers, and imo that's a GOOD thing.
