With multiple bundles and SKUs available for Sony’s Move motion control setup, their announcements of sales statistics may not be as clear to the success of the new platform as some may expect. When looking at console bundles, buffered by the sales ratio of Move’s 4.1 million in 4 months versus Kinect’s 2.5 million in 25 days, analyst Michael Pachter says that Kinect is “winning” by far.
“About one fifth of PS3 sales included bundles with Sony’s Move controller, suggesting a modest third month. About half of Xbox 360 sales included bundles with Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral, suggesting a strong first month. Xbox 360 Kinect console bundles outsold PS3 Move console bundles by more than 5:1,” he noted.
