At the end of sep 2006, the PSP was reported to have sold roughly 22.9 Million units to the general public from retail stores. So how come on the main page it shows the PSP as selling less than 21 million units to date? Are the updates for the PSP a little left behind or what?

Around the Network

Most likely the 22m report was SHIPPED and sold to retailers, and not consumers. VGCharts only tracks (or tries to track) sales to consumers.

 

This means that although there were 22m+ PSP shipped to retailers (sold to the retailers) last year, as of right now, 21 have sold.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

Actually the 22m number comes from this site under world->hardware sales.



Can you answer this one.

I know exactly what this site is about, I was one of the first early adopters of this site when it had just one web page. I stated 22.9 mill units sold (not shipped) for the end of sep. 2006. That's why this thread is directed to a VGC staff that'll have a better grasp of their proccedings than just users.

This (http://vgchartz.com/worldcons.php) page is called Worldwide Hardware Shipments.


And this (http://www.scei.co.jp/corporate/data/bizdatapsp_e.html) page from Sony states Cumulative Production Shipments, with is even less then "shipped".

There is a difference between Shipped and sold to consumers, companies like Sony say sold when they mean shipped to retailers

Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

You obviously didn't even bother reading the posts did you? The figure 22.9 is not Sony's figures. It's the number of units sold to cunsumers (by the end of sep 2006) from retailers and not shipped numbers from Sony to retailers.
