Microsoft Kinect Bundles Currently Outselling PS3 Move Bundles 5:1!
If this were a boxing match, Microsoft knocked down Sony! Kinect has shipped 8 million units outselling PS3 Move.
In December, Xbox 360 Kinect bundles easily surpassed PS3 Move bundles. Here is what Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter had to say,
“About one fifth of PS3 sales included bundles with Sony’s Move controller, suggesting a modest third month (we have chosen not to subscribe to peripheral data). About half of Xbox 360 sales included bundles with Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral, as Xbox 360 Kinect console bundles outsold PS3 Move console bundles by 5:1.”
“Microsoft announced that it has shipped 8 million Kinect units since launch (in November), which was raised from its earlier goal of 5 million. More significantly, in our view, the top two selling Kinect software titles outsold the top two Move titles by over 13:1.”
I am confident tha Sony’s number will increase for the Move and that they are hard at work developing newer and better games and technology. Kinect currently has two powerhouse games on the market,Dance Central and Kinect Sports. Each game has sold over one million copies in the US alone according to Microsoft.
I am a fan of PS3 and nothing would change that unless I can test it first hand side-by-side with an XBOX. If someone reading this wants to send me an XBOX so I can test this than feel free to do so.
Did you buy or receive a Kinect this Christmas? Have you used a PS3 Move before? Let us know your thoughts!
