GDC 2010: Sony Motion Controller Officially Called PlayStation Move

Update: According to Sony, (speaking to game blog Joystiq), the company has shipped over 4 million PlayStation Move units. Their original release specified that they had sold that many, but was, apparently, referring to the number of Move units shipped to stores, not the number that was purchased by consumers. That means that there is an unknowable/unreleased number of PlayStation Move units sitting on retailer shelves right now. 

Sony's representative told Joystiq: "While we don't disclose our exact sell-through number, the key is that our retailers continue to ask for more Move units and are taking every unit we can supply them with based on their sales."

Original Story: According to Sony, over 4.1 million PlayStation Move controllers have been sold since the system launched. The system dropped only two months ago in North America and thirty days ago in PlayStation-happy Japan. Sony says the positive sales numbers show "clear success of the launch of the new motion sensing controller but also indicates positive momentum going in to the holiday season and to the year 2011."

I like the PlayStation motion-control system as technology, but I haven't seen the software to really make it sing yet (or even yodel), so I'm a little iffy on purchasing a Move. Still, Move-enabled versions of LittleBigPlanet 2 and Killzone 3 are on the way, which might be enough to tip me toward purchasing it, particularly if Killzone finds a way to seamlessly, gracefully incorporate Move tech into the shooter.

What about you? Are you Move-ing? What do you think so far?
