Move Ships 10.5 Million Worldwide
The PlayStation Move has all sorts of potential and thus far, a great many have responded to that potential.
According to new statistics unveiled at a Game Developers Conference session (as cited by IGN), Sony developer support engineer Gabe Ahn announced that Move has shipped 10.5 million units worldwide.
This includes combined shipments of Move controllers and Navigation controllers, though, and they didn't mention a specific sold-through number. However, it's significant to note that as of October, Sony reported 8.3 million shipped, which means Move has done relatively well since that time. Ahn added that the motion-sensing system is "part of our DNA" and clearly, they intend to stick with it for a while. Thus far, the most popular title by a long shot is Sports Champions, which is included in the Starter Pack.
Most would agree Move needs some AAA software to keep it relevant and exciting and hopefully, we'll start seeing more of that. And hey, Sorcery isn't too far off now, so that could push more units.
