Sony sells 1.8 million PlayStation Move units According to Bloomberg and one analyst, Sony has sold 1.8 million PlayStation Move units since launch, with an overwhelming amount of sales coming from Europe.
Andrew House, Sony Europe's boss, says 1.5 million units were sold in Europe since launch on September 19th.

The company is now looking to ramp up production in the region.

"The initial sales response has been so far in excess of our initial plan that we'll probably be looking at accelerating production," says House.

Wedbush Morgan video game industry analyst Michael Pachter says Sony has sold 300,000 units in the United States, including console bundles. Sony America has not confirmed those sales, however.

Wow, that's actually a lot better than I thought it would.

Over 1 million in such a short time.. Really surprised.

There is no need to spam other sites especially when they say EXACTLY the same thing as our report. Thanks.

You really need to read the entire article, if not just the first paragraph of an article that you are posting before you try to contradict what you see here.

Just tried it out at the mall yesterday..played Some table tennis game..Now I don't know quiet, if it was because of the Curvaceous CPU opponent that I was playing against that I liked playing it or was it the superb motion sensing...but It was miles better than what was next to it..the Wii Sports.
Sony now needs to incorporate it in FPS or RTS kind of games..serious stuff.

You're absolutely right. Motion sensing is a billion times better than that of the Wii. SUPER RESPONSIVE and it ACTUALLY follows your every movement!! Too bad it's sold out everywhere, at least where I'm from. Not to mention, there's a 2-3 page waiting list at almost every electronic/gaming store I visited. Guess I'll have to wait. I didn't expect Move to be this big.

On a side note, I know it's not a PS4 but does anyone know what THIS is? Looks very interesting. Some say it's 3D gaming... ???
