So... what are the REAL numbers ?
So far, we only have speculation here. Is there any other tool to track REAL numbers besides Vgchartz.
All we know is that PS2 sold at least 153,68 million and Ds sold 154.55 million, AT LEAST. Is there any OFFICIAL statement that proves they sold more than that ?
Or are we discussing empty numbers ?
As of March 2012 a year ago the PS2 sold 155.1m
As of March 2013 the DS has sold 153.87m
During the past fiscal year the PS3+PS2 have sold a combined total of 16.5m. Sony have said that this fiscal year they sold fewer PS3's than last fiscal year and last fiscal year they sold 13.9m PS3's. So that means that the maximum the PS3 could have sold this fiscal year was 13.8m, and when you subtract that from the 16.5m combined yearly sales total that leaves a MININUM of 2.7m PS2's sold.
So it is a FACT that the minimum the PS2 sales can be is 155.1m + 2.7m = 157.8m as of March 2013.
However if you want to believe that the PS2 has only sold that minimal amount then you have to believe that the PS3 has infact sold 77.7m with the difference in total numbers which is highly unlikely due to the fact that:
1. All other independent sales trackers show the PS3 is down more than 1-2%
2. Jack Tretton CEO of Sony America said that the PS3 has sold roughly 77m.
