donniebaseball23 writes: After boasting that the new PlayStation Move motion controller was selling "extremely well," Sony has now provided some real data to back up their claim. IndustryGamers reports that North American sales in the first month totaled 1 million units, and SCEA boss Jack Tretton said shortages for the controller could be a problem through February. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe previously said that Move sold 1.5 million in Europe, so the worldwide total now stands at 2.5 million (it just launched in Japan). This is all before Microsoft launches its Kinect platform, but the company is pumping half a billion dollars into marketing and has gained the support of Oprah and Ellen DeGeneres.
