Nintendo sold 600,000 Wii consoles during the week of Black Friday. Sony has shipped over 4.1 million of its Wii-like Move units to retailers worldwide. Microsoft has moved at least 2.5 million of its controllerless Xbox Kinect devices to consumers and is on pace to sell 5 million before the end of the year.
Sales numbers, gift guides, and anecdotal evidence (I have a friend in USC’s Video Game Design and Management Master’s Program who tells me his professors do not allow him to conceive of any video game that requires any kind of tangible controller) all indicate motion gaming is going to become a big part of the $60 billion US global video game industry.
