1.5M Moves sold in Europe

Sony reports "very significant sales in the first month" of sales

Sony has confirmed it sold "somewhere in the region of 1.5 million" PlayStation Move controllers in Europe alone in its first month on sale.

SCEE boss Andrew House told Bloomberg that Move has seen "very significant sales in the first month since launch, somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe."

This result has taken Sony by surprise. "The initial sales response has been so far in excess of our initial plan that we'll probably be looking at accelerating production," added House.

This success is likely to continue if a recent US survey, which found interest in Move and Kinect to be high, is anything to go by.

House also said Sony expects "very, very strong" Christmas holiday sales for its consoles in Europe, and for sales of the PS3 to exceed 15M in this fiscal year.
