2,500,000 PlayStation Moves Sold Already

PlayStation Move may look a bit strange, but looks aren't everything and it seems people are flocking to stores to buy the device.

Sony's motion-sensing peripheral was launched a little over a month ago, on September 19, and in the month since launch, the company has sold one million units in the Americas. Reuters cites Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, as saying the company does not expect to have the supply to meet demand until February 2011.
"We had to go back and increase production twice, we're absolutely maxed out right now," he said.
However, Move isn't just selling well in the United States and Latin America. No, European gamers are loving it too. According to Reuters, the first month of sales saw 1.5 million units shifted in Europe.
We were never really that impressed by Move, but it seems Microsoft will have its work cut out when it comes to selling Kinect for Xbox 360. The Kinect launch is scheduled for November 4 and Reuters reports that Redmond hopes to sell 3 million before they ring in the new year. This means Microsoft needs to see Kinect sell as fast as Sony is selling the Move to meet its target.
Did you buy Move? Or are you holding out for Microsoft's Kinect? Let us know in the comments below!
