More than 4.1 million PlayStation Moves shipped

1 Dec 2010

The Playstation Move has shipped more than 4.1 million units worldwide since its recent launch.

The figures come just after Microsoft revealed it has sold 2.5 million Kinect devices since its release.

The PlayStation Move has had a bit of a headstart over the Kinect, not to mention its cheaper price, but it’s still impressive for the new motion controller for the PlayStation 3.

It was launched in September in North America and Europe and one month ago in Japan. Sony believes these sales will make for positive momentum for the Christmas season.

Sony also said more than 41.6 million PlayStation 3 units have been sold, giving the Move plenty of room to grow.

It will be interesting to see how sales go for both the Kinect and the Move by the end of Christmas.
