Slim PS3 news: Kinect Beats PS3 Move By More Than 1 Million Units

The latest PS3 news:

Microsoft managed to outsell Sony’s PS3 Move controller by a substantial margin in 2010, according to market research firm IHS iSuppli – even actual sales were not as high as Microsoft previously announced.

Kinect posted a global sell-through (to consumers) of 6.36 million units by the end of 2010, IHS iSuppli said. The number is well below the (channel) sell-in of 8 million units that was announced by Microsoft at CES 2011, but it is ahead of 5.23 million (sell-through) Move controllers. Since more than one controller can be purchased for every PS3, the market research firm estimates that 4.26 million PS3 were Move-enabled.

“Sony’s marketing investment in Move was dwarfed by Microsoft’s,” IHS iSuppli said. “And although the cheapest standalone Move controller was $100 lower than Kinect, Sony’s marketing investment showed in sales. Move went on sale more than a month earlier than Kinect.”
