In an interview with Bloomberg Andrew House, Head of SCEE, has outlined the initial success of the Playstation Move. Considering the initial scepticism of many gamers about Sony entering the motion gaming market, this takeup has been nothing short of remarkable.
According to House, Move has seen “very significant sales in the first month since launch, somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe. The initial sales response has been so far in excess of our initial plan that we’ll probably be looking at accelerating production.”
With Christmas fast approaching, and a host of upcoming games making the most of Move (most excitingly, Killzone 3) this is great news for Sony. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how Microsoft respond with Kinect when it launches next month.
