DAILY MANIFESTO

Kinect and Move to Sell 10 Million Units Each by 2011, Says Analyst

Posted on Monday, November 1 @ 15:12:41 Eastern by
It's not just a fad. Motion controls are here to stay. Though the Wii's sales might be slowing, two new contenders are vying to become the next big thing in motion-controlled gaming.


As if the Wii wasn't enough a thorn in the side of hardcore gamers everywhere, both Sony and Microsoft have their own motion-controlled experience with the PlayStation Move and Xbox 360's Kinect, respectively. But will they enjoy the same success that the Wii did? According to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, they'll do just fine.

Though Kinect will benefit tremendously from heavy marketing, Pachter believes the PlayStation Move will fare just as well. The industry analyst fully expects each to sell "over 10 million units by year-end 2011". The positive effect it will have on the industry doesn't stop there:

"These 20 million households are likely to buy 2 – 3 games apiece, resulting in software sales of 40 – 60 million units and publisher revenues of $1.5 – 2 billion next year."

With sales that strong for the newcomers and the Wii still trucking right along side of them, don't expect motion controls to go away anytime soon.
