Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

Workers at a shipping facility in Brampton, Ontario discovered on Monday that a trailer containing $500,000 worth of Sony goods was stolen. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the very next day a second trailer went missing containing even more PS3 and PSP games and hardware.

The trailers appeared to have been stolen while they were parked and the driver was away. One had a Nebraska license plate, the other was from Ontario. If you see either-who are we kidding? You will be too busy playing Black Ops to care.

Move sales around 1.5 million in Europe, 300K estimated for US

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 17th, 2010

Sony’s PlayStation Move motion controller is definitely moving across Europe. Sony Europe’s Andrew House noted “very significant sales” for the Move, saying that it has sold “somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe.” Sales have exceeded Sony’s original hopes, so it looks like the company will likely increase production of the peripheral.

Sales may not be as great in America, however. In a report released to the media, Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter estimated that the motion controller sold roughly 300,000 units in its US debut. That includes Move console bundles; though SCEA has not released official sales figures yet.
