PostSubject: PS3's Move Sold 'Well Below Expectations,' says Pachter   Fri Oct 15, 2010 1:59 pm

Quote :


Yesterday, Sony Computer Entertainment America told us that the PlayStation Move "is performing extremely well at retail," although the company seemed reluctant to actually provide hard data to back up this statement. After all, if the product is selling so well, why not give us the sales information? In Europe, Sony revealed that Move sold around 1.5 million units.

In North America, however, Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes that Move really did not fare as well as Sony would have liked. Despite the suspected slow start, Pachter still thinks that Move, and Microsoft's Kinect, will have a notable impact on industry sales this holiday season. "Even though we believe Move sold well below expectations in its first month, we expect it, along with the Kinect (launching November 4), to drive hardware sales at holiday," he said.

The launch of PlayStation Move did not seem to noticeably lift the fortunes of Sony's PS3 either; Pachter revealed that the PS3 sold 312,000 units in September, which represents a 37% decline year-over-year.

And this would have to be the first article of Patchers I actually have to agree with XD

If someone buys 2 move controllers to play the two handed games, that counts as 2 units sold.
That sort of dilutes the numbers in Sony favour in my opinion.

Dilutes the numbers? Just like counting SHIPPED as SOLD, right?

So Sony or any other gaming corporation has never done that before?

VGchartz - http://gamrfeed.vgchartz.com/story/82391/playstation-move-470000-units-sold-in-four-weeks/

600 thousand in America and EMEAA sold...

There's something really fucked up is going on. This 1.5 mil are shipped numbers, but what are the odds of the sales being that low compared to shipments? And VGchartz couldn't be that far off either. Maybe their both bullshitting? (No red line? That's a word? LOL)

the 470000 in 4 weeks isnt vgchartz estimates, its official word I believe (if im wrong them so be it)

so the 1.5 million europe must be a shipped number.

that does mean a shit laod of move is rotting on shelves...........but based on what ive seen and heard, thats a very believable scenerio.

Perhaps Sony shipped that many expecting them to sell out, only to find only a fraction of the gamers were into it.
