Sony Salutes Move's "Blockbuster Success", Hints at More Patches

All sewn up

The NPD figures for November are out, and Sony is pretty pleased with Move's performance, calling it a "blockbuster success" and suggesting we haven't seen the last of already-released titles receiving updates for the motion controller.

Patrick Seybold, SCEA's senior director of corporate communications, had this to say:

In fact, the strength of Move’s technology infrastructure in allowing our developers to make already released titles Move compatible, will help broaden the net of their existing PS3 titles, bringing them to life even further with PlayStation Move.

Sony hasn't released any further figures about Move's sales, sticking to the 4.1 million Moves sold around the world, a healthy figure indeed. The company also claims the recent stock shortages will continue until 2011, so it's over to you for the last word, Mr Seybold:

The early blockbuster success of PlayStation Move has undoubtedly helped to pave the way for us as we head into 2011. The library of hard core and social gamer titles currently on the store shelves (EyePet, Get Fit with Mel B, Gran Turismo 5, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, SingStar Dance) as well those to come (Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, LittleBigPlanet 2, Twisted Metal, Killzone 3) will only continue to solidify our place in the living room.

Sadly Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception isn't going to use PlayStation Move, but with the rest of the line-up in place it's hard to complain too much.
