Sony will not outspend Microsoft on Playstation Move marketing

Written by Nick Farell

Can't compete
Sony has admitted to the Seattle Times that it can't outspend Microsoft when it comes to marketing its coming Playstation Move.

The console is competing with the new Kinect linked Xbox and according to Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing at SCEA Sony only has about a million dollars to spend. He admitted he does not think Sony will ever outspend Microsoft.

Move launches in two days. Since this is ahead of Microsoft's Kinect launch on November 4, it seems that Sony hopes that its time lead will give it an advantage.

Certainly that was one of the reasons Microsoft was able to kill the PS3. That and the fact it was a lot cheaper.

I wouldn't exactly say that MS have 'killed' the PS3. Yes they have still sold more, but the PS3 is gradually catching up and has been since it was released. It's only a matter of time before the 360 is overtaken.

Here in Aus. it seems to be a completely different deal, I haven't seen the Kinect advertised at all, but I've seen plenty of advertisements for Move.

Mind you, maybe I haven't been looking in the right places.

Microsoft killed the PS3? Nice try.

I made this same exact point some time ago when they posted about xbox sales being higher than wii because ps3 sales also have been rising, but apparently no one seemed to agree then
