Do we really need ANOTHER one of what is pretty much the same article everyday. Also VGChartz numbers are whack. Their LTD sales for PS3 are about 2/3 million off of the OFFICIAL report Sony issued last month.

N4PS3Fanboys3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Once again, Sony's numbers are shipped to retailers, and VGChartz numbers are sold to consumers. Sony has clearly overshipped the PS3 by a lot in the last quarter. Take a look at this quick little analysis:

"Jan-March 2010: According to Sony, PS3 shipped 2.2 million
During that time, PS3 sold 950.9k in NPD + 500k in Media Create = 1.45m North America/Japan.

April-June 2010: According to Sony, PS3 shipped 2.4 million
During that time, PS3 sold 640k in NPD + 250k in Media Create = 900k North America/Japan.

So Sony shipped 200,000 more this quarter despite selling 550,000 less in North America and Japan.

No way would the difference be made up in Europe or other areas. Sales would have likely declined there as well. The numbers are pretty clear. Sony shipped a ton more than they sold this quarter to catch up a supply shortage. That should normalize in their next financial report."

No way can anyone look at that analysis and not notice how odd it is that the PS3 shipped more last quarter, but sold far less in all territories according to official sources such as NPD and Media Create.

why do yall give a sh*t about sales so much? do you think that either of these 3 companies are going anywhere?

also even with the PS3 in 3rd place Sony sure hasn't had any problems releasing great games this generation in a VARIETY of genres.

i don't mean to come on too harsh, but it's getting really annoying how sales articles dominate this donkey ball site.

Not SHIPPED to retailers.

Sony and Nintendo both changed from shipped to sold during 2007.

Just take a look at this comment which provides quotes from, and links to, Sony's investor site.

Or would you guys rather believe in VG Chartz over Sony's own investor relations website?

But lets pretend that Sony doesn't track sold to consumer numbers. Lets pretend that we still live in an age where its impossible to track sold to consumers.

Tell me why VG Chartz numbers for the 360 is almost the same as Microsoft's official SHIPPED numbers... while 2-3 million off from Sony's supposedly "shipped" numbers?
