I know its early days, but the sales of the PS move have been pretty poor. I would have thought it would have done much better. Sports Champions and Start the Party, are casual games yes, but are absolutely amazing at showing off how good the move is and the price is just right got the Move controller for only £29.99 from toys r us but I havent heard any shops selling out at all. Many PS3 owners as well are not interested I really hope that this doesnt mean Sony will abadon the Move if it doesnt get more popular, I think maybe its due to the fact that the look is similar to the Wii and people do not understand how much better it is. What do you guys think?

I have to say that with F1 and Fifa coming out recently it has limited my time on the Move because there is lack of depth to keep me on a Move title for a long time.
I do hope the sales pick up and it goes from strength to strength. It's a great piece of hardware and clearly has the potential to be better than Wii with its accuracy and detail PS3 can deliver.
I think the Wii is too much in the public eye, im fairly confident most people know someone with a Wii and they will talk it up which might convince sales. This is what Move needs to acheive, word of mouth awesomeness.

every person bought a Wii back when it came out
im not a fan of MOVE, for the same money [ full set-up cam move controller other controller + game ]
i could of bought a 2nd hand wii with sports added and controllers for less than the MOVE set-up
i think this is partly why lack of intrest

Well things have picked up in terms of advertising, the PS Move is advertised on YouTube I noticed, and I saw and advert for it on T.V the other day.
I think though, that people are automatically writting it off as a Wii mote rip off. Because let's face it: to the unrtained casual person: it very much is a wii rip off. We as gamers and PS3 owners know it not to be the case, but it wouldn't seem that way to someone who doesn't know much about it.
What they should have done, is shown Sorcerry, KillZone 3 and GT5 using the Move in the advert rather than start the party, to show that it's not just a WII rip off and will benefit existing PS3 owners.
It's actually selling pretty good from what I hear, it's just that the interest is dieing down as there are no good games outside of Sports Champions and arguably, Tumble.

I work at GAME and many stores in my region sold out during the first week of release. Having said that, I don't think move has really caught on yet, the main responses from the customers who haven't been interested are 1) 'oh it's just like the wii, isn't it' which of course we all know it isn't, both graphically and in terms of accuracy, sensitivity and gameplay potential! and 2) the lack of a decent range of launch titles. Sports Champions and Start the Party are awesome fun but to me they feel a little like glorified demos. I think as soon as a big name game comes out like Killzone3 or LBP2 that's when the move will really take off but as of yet I don't think there's anything which showcases its full potential.
Xmas sales are prety much guaranteed though!
