Microsoft : ‘there have been 2.5 million sales of Kinect’
*not long after*
Sony : ‘there have been 4.1 million sales of PlayStation Move’
While Nintendo are obviously kicking some serious butt in the motion control gaming race (their console being made for it and all) it looks like Sony are kicking dust into Microsoft’s ‘X’- branded faces when it comes to ‘who can sell the most motion gaming peripherals for consoles that have other ways of controlling them’.
Sony have sold 4.1 million PlayStation Move kits and approx. 41.6 million PS3 consoles have been sold worldwide and so around 10% of all of us PS3 gamers own the tech uses to wave at our TVs to hit table tennis balls (in Sports Champions), attack robots (in Start The Party) and pull ridiculous faces (in TV Superstar). I for one am proud to say that I own PlayStation Move! Even if I haven’t played it in weeks…
UPDATE – Sony have clarified that they’ve only shipped that number and that they’ve actually sold a figure that’s closer to Kinect’s 2.5 million.
