Shipped numbers are only official numbers we are getting, so of course I talking about shipped numbers, we getting official shipped numbers at end of every quarter, but at end shipped numbers equals sold numbers like you can see on link down:
I know how shipped numbers work, and I know the manufacturers supply them, I've been around here for over 11 years. You never specified shipped numbers, the thread is about lifetime sales of various platforms and it's on vgchartz, which has its own sales charts, the default discussion topic would then be sold to customers as per the front page. That's sort of the point of this place. Around holidays and during clearance sales, shipped figures tell only part of the story.
"Shipped numbers are only official numbers we are getting, so of course I talking about shipped numbers" again; that has to be specified. The OP makes no mention of shipped figures and the general discussion in the thread is about whether or not any one console will outsell the PSP. You have to be more clear, unless you changed your mind once you did the math and then insisted on shipped numbers instead, of course.
