Move stealing Wii's family crowd?

Sony stats show parental pleaser.

Sony reckons half of the people who want to buy PlayStation Move are parents.

The family vote has lead to great success for the Wii, but Sony's US blog goes on to insist that 60 per cent of the people who want Move already own Nintendo's console - they want to upgrade their motion-sensing experience apparently.

Since May, we're told, the number of people who want PlayStation Move has doubled. Of those, 30 per cent are women and 25 per cent are over 35 years-old - the average age is 28.

PlayStation Move trickled out in mid-September in Europe. Sony's Wiimote-like controller - which has a glowing bauble on top - has been in relatively high demand, although Sony never alluded to big upfront hardware sales like Microsoft is for Kinect. One million Move units have been shipped across the US, and PlayStation 3 worldwide sales have been bumped by the controller's arrival.

To keep momentum going, Sony plans to add another 15 games to the Move roster by the end of March 2011.

The list provided by the US PlayStation blog is below.
