Sony has sold more than 1.5 million of its Move PlayStation controller in the EMEA region since its launch in September.

The motion-sensitive controller sold out in the Middle East due to high demand, although Sony has made more stock available now, and new PlayStation Move titles have been released in the past week.

Kishan Palija, managing director of games retailer Geekay Group commented: "We were entirely out of stock! Sales were much higher than expected. It's probably one of the best products launched in this quarter for us. PlayStation Move provides the best quality alongside the best performance; when you combine PlayStation's graphics with Move's accuracy, it's a tough setup to beat!" remarked

Tim Stokes, director of sales and marketing for Sony Gulf FZE PlayStation Division added: "The initial success of the PlayStation Move demonstrates the continued popularity of gaming in the region and opens up PlayStation to a whole new generation of gamers."

The PlayStation Move motion controller is on sale in the UAE for AED169 RRP ($46), with the PlayStation Move navigation controller at AED129 RRP ($35). The PlayStation Move Starter Pack, which comprises a PlayStation Move motion controller, PlayStation Eye camera and a Starter disc including nine playable demos is available for AED269 RRP ($73).
