So what are we thinking then ps3 over-tracked by about 500k or so on here then? Haven't looked at the vgc numbers so haven't a clue.
On another note was in Morrisons (UK supermarket) and they had massive discount on the ps3's. 160gb for £150. That is cheaper then the 360. Never thought we would see that day.
Nope, PS3 probably spot on. 1.7m on shelves, more than they had last year on shelves.
Where are you getting the 1.7m on shelves by the end of 2011?
Sony shipped 14.1 million consoles this year -- http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=139492&page=1 and Vgchartz has them selling 14.059 million consoles in 2011 -- http://www.vgchartz.com/yearly/2011/Global/
Unless the shipment figure that sales gave for the PS3 is wrong and they actually shipped 15.76 million consoles in 2011.
Sales and Shipments arnt contained to years, we have 1.7 on shelves compared to lifetime shipments.
Well that's just a stupid and rather confusing way to go about it.
lol that's just more logical.
Period x company shipped lifetime yy.yy and VGC shows lifetime sales zz.zz for the same period x... so on shelves = yy.yy - xx.xx.
62.00 (shipped) - 60.32 (sales) = 1.68 on shelves
If you just use the year sales... you just forgot the units on shelves of the previous year.
