With recent news breaking that Sony has shipped one million units of PlayStation Move in the US, we thought we'd ask Sony Australia how the numbers have been going over here.
Turns out they don't have any firm numbers as of yet but apparently Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, which aggregates Europe, Australia and New Zealand into one giant PAL wonderland, are claiming that over one and a half million units have be shipped in total ('shipped' meaning sold to retailers, not to consumers, a number that seems even stronger than the one Sony are touting in the US.
It's easy to be cynical about these numbers, but they give us the sense that at the very least retailers worldwide are extremely confident of PlayStation Move's success this in the marketplace this Christmas - and often that can be half the battle. Sony are investing heavily in PlayStation Move and initial signs seem to be good.
The real proof, however, will come further down the track when we get a real idea of how consumers have responded to PlayStation Move, both at home and abroad.
