4.1 million PS Moves 'shipped, not sold' - Sony

Company won't release actual sell-through numbers

Sony said yesterday that it sold 4.1 million Move units between the motion controller's September launch and November - and it did, but only to retailers, and not to consumers as initially assumed.

The platform holder admitted in a statement today that the 4.1 million figure represents "global sales for the company" to retailers - and not actually sold to consumers.


"While we don't disclose our exact sell-through number, the key is that our retailers continue to ask for more Move units and are taking every unit we can supply them with based on their sales," the firm explained.

As a point of comparison, Microsoft said on Monday that rival motion cam Kinect sold 2.5 million units in its first 25 days on the market - though it's not clear whether that number's for retailers or consumers either.

So the great motion fight goes on...
