Lol of course someone starts the "ship sales" parade. Doesnt matter either way Sony got their pay. But it clearly states sales.

hudsoniscool2798d ago

everyone reports shipped. they dont know the exact number of "sales to consumer". and they did SELL 50 million consoles to retailers.

And retailers buy based on demand.

malamdra2798d ago (Edited 2798d ago )

this took Microsoft 61 months (nov05-dec10)
and it took Sony 52 months (nov06-mar11)

and probably even less for Sony because PS3 released in Europe 4 months later, so with 48 months in Europe we can do an average of around 50 months worlwide total, so PS3 is selling almost a year faster than the 360

Never thought I'd say this, but it feels so refreshing to see a sales based article on N4G.
