Pachter doesn’t believe the 4.1 million figure, puts move sales closer to 2.5 million

1 min read

According to the industry sales guru, Michael Pachter, when Sony said they had sold 4.1 million Move units they had really meant to say they had shipped 4.1 million units to retailers and had only sold 2.5 million to clients.

His figures are coming from the now super secret NPD results and extrapolated from Europe and Japan.

If he is correct then the Move sales are exactly on par with the Kinect sales but in reality it will be falling behind as it’s been on the market longer and each user can easily be buying more than 1 Move device.

So 2.5 million Kinects means that a developer has a user base of 2.5 million users but 2.5 million Move’s could mean the actual base is closer to 1.2 million users.

The Pach has been proven wrong before though so take this with a pinch of salt for now.
