Analyst: Move selling “well below expectations” in the US

Move’s reportedly off to a great start in Europe, which great news for Sony and PS3 fans alike. But, uh oh, here comes Wedbush analyst Micheal Pachter and he’s not so optimistic about the controller’s performance in the US.

He reckons that Move has sold “well below expectations” in its first month, saying: “Even though we believe Move sold well below expectations in its first month, we expect it, along with the Kinect (launching November 4), to drive hardware sales at holiday.”

Hopefully Move sales pick up as the software line-up does. As Pachter states, Kinect isn’t far from release now too; is the Move in for a rough ride?
