Michael Pachter, discussing consoles, yesterday

Although the NPD reports claim PlayStation Move drove accessory sales upwards last month, and Sony claiming Move is outselling its expectations in Europe, it's not all roses and sunshine in Move World according to US analyst Wedbush Morgan's main games mouthpiece Michael Pachter.

Even though we believe Move sold well below expectations in its first month, we expect it, along with the Kinect (launching November 4), to drive hardware sales at holiday.

Of course this raises a few questions: how many units did Move sell after all, and whose expectations are we measuring against? Hopefully we'll have answers soon, but either way, expect the controller's sales to grow and grow in the run-up to Christmas.
