Illustration for article titled Sony: Weve Moved More Than A Million PlayStation Moves

Sony's motion controller add-on for the PlayStation 3 has been out for a little more than a month in North America. How's the PlayStation Move doing, according to Sony? Oh, spectacularly, of course!


Sony Computer Entertainment America says it has shipped—meaning sold to retailers, not necessarily to consumers—"over one million units" of the Move in the first 30 days of availability in North America and Latin America. Sony calls that "rapid adoption" indicative of "widespread consumer interest" in owning more wireless motion control wands.

SCEA CEO Jack Tretton calls retail demand "incredibly strong" in the official announcement, also telling Reuters that "demand is easily outstripping supply."


Doing some window shopping online, it appears that PlayStation Move is well-stocked at most retailers (GameStop,, Target), with others (Walmart, Best Buy) seemingly short on supply of individual Move units.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe said last week that it had sold an estimated 1.5 million in Europe.

We've inquired with Sony about specific sell through numbers to actual consumers. In the meantime, Kotaku readers in the retail trenches, we'd love to hear your take on Move sales at your place of employment.
