Locked: 5.5 million PS3s sold

Forums - Sales Discussion - 5.5 million PS3s sold

It would be nice if articles like that clarified between "shipped" and "sold to consumers". Otherwise, it causes confusion, especially to the layman.



-Manella: Yeah... sux0rz! I hate missing out on food...
-Maya: Nick... what does "Sucksores" mean?
-Phoenix: No idea...

Obviously no one was prepared for the PS3 to take Kyrgyzstan by storm. Though rarely tracked for sales due to it's poverty stricken economy, this nation of 5 million people fell in love with the PS3's blu-ray player, purchasing it en mass in anticipation of the day they could also afford high def televisions and electricity. And don't expect the PS3 sales to slow down anytime soon. There's still 3 million more Kyrgyzstanians who have yet to get one!



I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

The 5.5 million cites number "sold" by Sony from their Annual report (fiscal year 2006), just like the 5.84 million is the number used by Nintendo.

From your second source, ssj12:
"In its annual report, Sony said it sold 5.5 million Playstation 3 units in the fiscal year ended March 31 2007, despite having faced production yield problems for its blue semiconductor lasers that feature inside each machine."

Shipped not sold. We've had a number of these topics already !

Uh? Come on you of all people should know that the 5.5 million units shipped was of March 31st 2007 and it's been widely reported to be about 7 million shipped as of now. You're surely not saying Sony didn't ship anymore consoles to retailers after March 31 are you?


Sigh...well they could have used old numbers? I mean they did that for Wii last report I read.

 Most important if you don't think Media Create and NPD lies, PS3 needs to have sold around 3 millions in Europe alone, looking at the last weeks software sales in UK I most say there is a lot of Blu-ray buyers.



 

 

Buy it and pray to the gods of Sigs: Naznatips!

If the sites state that they were SOLD SOLD SOLD microsoft said SHIPPED SHIPPED SHIPPED sony said SOLD SOLD SOLD why cant you guys believe the ps3 has SOLD SOLD SOLD 5.5Million units? The ps myspace blog even said that sony says they SOLD SOLD SOLD 5.5 million units as of june 10.

This has been confirmed by Yahoo.

And Compound SemConductor .

both of these sites are very reliable. So, im guessing all the consoles were sold in the regions not really monitored like Russia, England, etc.   


OMG!... Believe what you want! Just check charts from Mediacreate, Famitsu and VGCharts. They can't all be off by more than 70%...!!! This is shipped, not sold!

I know it's hard to have a loosing system (N64/Gamecube era for me ...) But don't start to come up with lies! That's just REALLY pathetic!... When PS3 reaches 5.5 Mil SOLD, not shipped. Then Wii will be around 14 mil if this pase continues!... So dream on little boy!... Believe whatever you want! But you're now believing in lies!

And Dolladolla: Nintendo also said Shipped in their fiscal report... But they had a total sell through (PS3 didn't!!!) So we can assume the salesnumbers were pretty close to that number!

Because there is no reliable proof.



Is there some kind of chemical imbalance in the fanboy brain that prevents them from understanding the difference between selling to retailers and consumers.
