PlayStation Move Catching up On Xbox Kinect??


Yesterday, Industrygamers did an exclusive post on how PlayStation Move is catching up on Kinect. I completely disagree with their analysis.

Kinect quickly reached 8 million sold in 60 days and then hit the 10 million mark, but that was back in March. Meanwhile, Sony’s Move has been selling at a slightly steadier clip and has recently reached the 9 million mark. As IndustryGamers’ Steve Peterson points out in his┬áspecial on Kinect, “The Kinect’s weakness has been the sales pattern, where 8 million devices sold in 2 months, and then in the next 10 months only 2 million more devices were sold. This has led to some concerns.”

First comparing 8 month old Kinect stat with PlayStation Move’s latest stat is stupid. Also its important to know that Kinect is a single accessory when compared it to Sony’s Move which needs a sensor, and two controllers. So Sony have sold only 2-4 million PlayStation Move sensor/controller sets in the whole 1 year period. With about 70 game titles available for Kinect this holiday season and new improved dashboard that takes advantage of Kinect, Kinect will further increase its lead from PS Move.
