I still don't see how anyone can be comfortable with how Sony is reporting sales for Move.  Well, unless you really are a hardcore fanboy that doesn't value sustainable success.


you mean how they're reporting shipped or how they aren't giving us a clear idea of the userbase?


Exactly.

Well I don't really see how you can expect different since reporting shipped numbers is absolutely the norm in the game industry.  Whenever we get any numbers from the big three we assume that they're shipped until told otherwise, I don't see why you would expect this to be different.



...

Pretty darn impressive, even if it is shippedand including individual contollers. Wouldn't have thought breaking 4m shipped was possible this early.

In other words, the majority of the thread is "fanboys"?

And why don't you put these same regulations on Microsoft or Nintendo? This is how things work in the gaming industry.

I can't detect if this is sarcasm or not?

Exactly.

when sony announces numbers,these numbers are not for people on forums or for sony fanboys, they are for stock holders. and stock holders only care about shipped numbers because sony sells to retailers it does not sell to customers directly.

4.1 million shipped is 4.1 million sold in the eyes of sony as they have recieved payment from the retailers for 4.1 million units.

I do however agree that the definition of "units" is more than a little vague but i will assume it includes console bundles, starter pack, the pseye and all controllers sold.  putting the actual userbase around maybe half of this newly announced number?.

either way this is making sony a ton of money.

This announcement seems to mark how many combo packs and single sticks that Sony has shipped to retail in preparation for the holiday season.

Since most people are probably buying at least 2 of these items, the 4.1M number is at least 2x the expected user base by the end of the year.

However, Sony may have been too late in getting items to market as the eBay sales and apparently unavailability of the controllers at retail means that demand is outstripping supply.
