1m PS Moves shipped in America

Consumers have already shown their preference for a precise, interactive game experience," boasts Tretton

Sony has shipped a million PlayStation Move controllers to retailers in North and Latin America in its first 30 days on sale, as a pleased SCEA boss Jack Tretton says "consumers have already shown their preference for a precise, interactive game experience."

This comes days after SCEE confirmed the controller is going down a storm in Europe too, selling 1.5 million in that region alone in its launch month. That's a lot of glowing sticks, kids.

SCEA CEO Jack Tretton is a happy man. "PlayStation Move is the most recent example of how product innovation continues to provide our customers with new and exciting ways to enjoy our technology," he said in the announcement.

"Retail demand is incredibly strong and we're working hard to keep the product in stock. We believe consumers have already shown their preference for a precise, interactive game experience," he adds, in what sounds like a subtle dig at Wii.

"We are on target to meet our end of year goals and expect sales to increase as our publishers and developers continue to update popular titles and introduce new games," says Tretton.
