Pachter: Move Could Make Publishers Billions

Posted by James Newton

We're talking big money

Kinect vs. Move, Move vs. Kinect – who will win? Everybody's favourite analyst Michael Pachter is being uncharacteristically cagey about who he'll be backing, as he reckons both systems can shift over 10 million units before the end of 2011, making half of those sales before the current financial year ends in April 2011.

According to Pachter's maths, if each of the 10 million households buys two or three games for Move over the course of a year at $40 each, that's between $1 billion and $2 billion generated for publishers and developers. That's all without factoring in Sony's profits on the sale of the peripheral itself, which if it shifts 10 million Moves will further fill the company's coffers, which are already feeling the benefit of Move's launch.

As usual, he's not really telling us anything that isn't obvious. Must be nice to be paid to spout this stuff.

I wish I had his job. I know I can do a better job of being Captain Obvious, defender of the truth, no matter how bad it is
