Thought I'd let you guys know that Windows Central got the number wrong for PS4.

IIRC they 'leaked' November and December results. November PS4 number is wrong.

Was the 1.1 million figure a rounded number? For instance, it might've been rounded up from 1.05m or down from 1.14m.

Let say for example the PS4 sold 156 units. 

Would you round that to 150 or to 160? 

I wouldn't round it to 150. 



PS4 - 1.16m confirmed :p

Also we later got December numbers from other sources and they seemed to match what Windows Central said which gave them some credibility then but I guess we'll remain careful in the future.

I don't see any error with their other stuff.

I was giving an example. It's not 1.16m. 

I'm just saying they rounded the numbers, signifcantly so for PS4. 



Windows central fudged the ps4 numbers in the "downward direction"?

Not surprised in the least. Specially since they haven't "leaked" any other numbers.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

CGI was right to remain skeptical. I started to believe them.
I guess if thousands of people call you a chicken, you start to cluck.
