GameStop Struggling with PlayStation Move...In a Good Way

By Kyle Durant

March 25, 2011

Video game behemoth, GameStop, recently announced they are experiencing a high degree of demand for the PS3’s motion controller. This is great news for any peripheral especially six months since its release. Sony has been rather quiet on the total sales of the PS Move lately but as of December the Move sold 4.1 million units. You can only assume that number has only gotten higher and with this shortage of stock, can the Move sell over 10 million units?

“We have struggled to stay in stock on the Sony Move controllers; there’s a tremendous amount of demand for that,” said GameStop’s Tony Bartel. “Provided we can get more into stock, we should see some strong growth there as well.”

Would it be safe to say that the PlayStation Move controller will see a sales hike once the tactical shooter monster, Socom 4, makes its debut?

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
