Reading things like that makes me think: "where the hell MS got that $400 million revenu from?"
The majority knows why but they are just going to ignore it because it does not fit their agenda :)
Myself as well as everybody in my friend list bought it digitaly and I suspect it is a trend... It explains very well the 400M and Microsoft must be very happy about it. As they are not reporting how many they sold digitaly, obviously I may be wrong but at least it makes sense to reach this 400M unless someone else comes up with something more intelligent than "A remastered uncharted collection selling better than a new mainline halo game is bananas." and look at all numbers :).
I really doubt that digital is a big part of the $400 millions cause there are 3 possibilities
1) The leakers are full of sh... (very unlickly for hardware, but I am having a hard time believing those software numbers for the new leaker Andrew_NPD). Because if those numbers are right that will make the game at 1.150 millions not including digital (but including bundles) between US and UK. If I exagerate and give the rest of the world another 40% retail that would put it around 1.6 millions retails. Now again if I exagerate again and put digital total at 60%. that would put it at 2.5 millions WW. Still not enough to reach that $400.
2) MS included anything that can be considered hardware. Even if they had done this, I just don't see the math going to $400 unless they are adding shipments. Now I don't think retailers will take that kind of shipment if they were not sure to sell them. And if this is really shipment, then they have a lot I mean a lot of stock left to sell from hardware to software.
3)Now the third possibility for me is where some part of 1) is true and other part of 2) is true. I am not going to say that Andew_NPD numbers are fake, but it seems very unlikely. But I will give him the benefit of the doubt for now cause I don't remember a case where numbers were updated in an NPD thread becaue of bad leaks.
