i dont get it shipment figures say the gap is ~ 2.9 million

but VG chartz sales figures says the gap is ~ 3.9 million.

shouldn't sales and shipment difference be roughly the same or at max like ~ 3.4 million

360 has seen massive shortages in the last few months, but having trouble meeting demands.

You shouldn't base your opinions on the sales gap between consoles by units shipped as there are many factors that cause this value to be very very misleading.

I was under the impressioned shipped numbers are more accurate then VG chartz, since VG chartz adjusts it's sales after shipped numbers come out 

VGC adjustments never exceed 1 million units, and they tend to happen during unexpected changes in the market. PS3 saw an adjustment post Move launch because Move pushed consoles a lot more then expected, and the same happened for 360.

If you really want extremely accurate data, wait for MS, Sony and Nintendo's Quarterly Press conferences. Last one was in September/October, new one happened a couple weeks ago, hence the adjustment to VGC data.
