PS Move sales top 4.1 million30 November 2010 20:56:04
Sony has announced that it has sold over 4.1 million units of its new PS Move controller for the PS3.
Launched in September, the device allows users to control games using hand movements.
The number includes sales tallied in North America, Europe/PAL territories, Asia, and Japan.
Speaking to IGN.com, Patrick Seybold, senior director of corporate communications at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said: "The 4.1M units are global sales for the company. 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. Retailers are continuing to place more orders, both bundle and stand alone skus, with us based on the amount of units they are selling to their customers."
The news comes the same week that Microsoft announced that it has sold over 2.5 million units of its rival Kinect motion control device, which has been on sale since early November.

The A-Team released on Blu-Ray30 November 2010 15:34:46
Fans of The A-Team can now get their hands on the Blu-Ray version of the film, which has gone on sale in the UK.
The film, based on the 80s cult classic TV show of the same name, stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton Jackson and Sharlto Copley as the A-Team - John 'Hannibal' Smith, Templeton 'Face' Peck, BA Baracus and Howling Mad Murdoch.
The Blu-Ray version features a range of bonus material, including an unrated extended version of the movie alongside the theatrical release, as well as a 'making-of' documentary.
Further features include a commentary from director Joe Carnahan, deleted scenes, gag reel and a look at the special effects used in the film.
Reviewing the home cinema release of the film, the Metro newspaper commented: "Targeted at today's attention-deficit teens, this mega-noisy, big-bucks reboot might be packed with unnecessary CGI effects but the series' core strength, its wisecracking character ensemble, is largely intact."
