Sony Offers Move-Related Audience And Sales Stats
Sometimes, comprehensive statistical roundups are the best way to gauge product popularity and consumer interest.
Sony just released this digital flier of sorts, which outlines the current state of the PlayStation Move. On it, you'll find some interesting numbers- firstly, it says that 60% of those interested in buying Move already own a Wii, thereby illustrating the appeal to all gamers, even to those who already have motion sensing in the house. It also reconfirms the 1 million units sold in the Americas since its September 17 launch, and adds that 24 Move titles are currently available with 15 more expected by spring.
Furthermore, we get some interesting info concerning the intrigued demographic, as Sony claims that among those who intend to purchase Move, half are parents, 30% are female, and the average age is 28. Well, the PS3 ownership age is certainly higher than the Wii (and likely higher than the 360) so that shouldn't be too surprising, and considering the family-oriented nature of such technology, the parental interest isn't shocking, either.
If you're not yet on board with Move, maybe you'll change you mind in due time. Maybe it'll make for a perfect holiday gift...
