Forums - Sony Discussion - Accordin to this, PS3 has sold 33.5m not 31.7m

Ok there was shortages holiday time then but not now. So couldn't it be the case that Sony SHIPPED extra PS3s after the holidays? That wouldn't be too hard to believe would it? Getting sick of the crying fanboys.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

It's a shipped number, i can't believe these threads still come up every time financial reports come out with people claiming they are sold to customers, even posters that have been here for a long time. I will agree with people in here who are saying that it's hard to believe there are that many PS3s on shelves. To the contrary there have been shortages. I find it really hard to believe there are more than 2 million on shelves, even that may be pushing it.


However no documented shortages by Sony or any game news Ive seen. So obviously it was just normal here and there out of stocks. Like the 360 would have also had.

Ok. Sorry with all due respect to VGChartz. Hell no.

When the Wii is shortaged it's headline news. Certainly where gaming sites are concerned. Also Sony have never made such a claim at all.

Remeber VGChartz overtracked EU PS3 sales by nearly 700,000. So more than likely at the time PS3 nearly hit 1 mill, it was probably less due to EU overtracking at the time. So no it didnt hit 1 mill because it didnt sell that many.

There are 2 million PS3's on shelves. There was no out of the ordinary out of stocks. Figures are figures. Even Sony have said they sold through 31 million to consumers in an interview last week.

sorry to tell you but there are still shortages.

and no... these numbers would not include figures SHIPPED after the holidays since these numbers dont go into january. those will be shown in April/May

Whatever Sony shipped after the holidays does not count into 3rd quater shipments.

If the data was from December 31st then it's possible some were shipped after December 25th.

face palm yourself please... 2 million units arent going to be shipped in 1 week... maybe 200k.. but not 2 million



Heh. We're all supposed to buy into the idea that some mystical MW2 bump allowed the 360 to suuurge ahead and that the PS3 hadn't been significantly outselling it after all. NPD showed that the PS3 outsold the 360 and that's the 360's strongest territory. That's why this "adjustment" in other territories seem like a wad of bird crap. Do yourself a favor and try not to put too much stock into the numbers of a "Fanalyst".



Sony's current estimate for shipment for the fiscal year is 13 million.

To present, VGC has the amount sold as 11.3 million for the fiscal year.

Seemingly, VGC is very close to the Sony estimate as there are still two months left in the fiscal year. If the PS3 does about 200k per week, then that would add about 1.8 million to the total, which would be slightly above 13 million.

How many people are going to give VGC credit for being so close to Sony's own estimate?



Anyone can guess. It takes no effort to throw out lots of predictions and have some of them be correct. You are not and wiser or better for having your guesses be right. Even a blind man can hit the bullseye.
