Sony hypes Move success, still won't give out sales data

Yet again, Sony has boasted about the sales success of PlayStation Move while refusing to give out any appreciable sales figures. Reacting to the latest NPD figures, which detailed a 5% increase in PS3 sales and a 112% month-over-month boost, corporate communications chief Patrick Seybold is gloating, yet still remaining coy. 

The early blockbuster success of PlayStation Move has undoubtedly helped to pave the way for us as we head into 2011.  The library of hard core and social gamer titles currently on the store shelves (EyePet, Get Fit with Mel B, Gran Turismo 5, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, SingStar Dance) as well those to come (Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, LittleBigPlanet 2, Twisted Metal, Killzone 3) will only continue to solidify our place in the living room.

"In fact, the strength of Move’s technology infrastructure in allowing our developers to make already released titles Move compatible, will help broaden the net of their existing PS3 titles, bringing them to life even further with PlayStation Move. We’re pleased that consumers continue to look to PlayStation for innovative and unique entertainment experiences. As we head into the new year, with almost every PlayStation Move sku in short supply and on allocation, I think we will continue to see a steady surge of positive growth for our home entertainment offerings simply because customers looking for strong product value, quality entertainment offerings, depth in gaming and content (original programming, NetFlix, Hulu Plus, NHL, MLB), will choose PlayStation."

Cute but I'm still not buying this hype until Sony can back it up with evidence. Microsoft can tell us how many Kinects it sold. Why can't Sony do the same with Move?
