@leo-j

I notice that you didn't answer my question above, but I guess that might because truth hurts....

So here it comes: NPD + Media creat gives ~2.5 million are you saying that EU has bought 3 million PS3? Or are you saying that NPD and MC is lying?

So between japan and US and Canada the PS3 has sold 2.4 million according to NPD and MC/Famitsu independent tracking numbers. Sony itself said it only crossed a million in the PAL regions a few weeks ago which woudl make 3.4 million add in anoth 600,000 to make you happy and you get 4 million which is no where close to 5.5 million.

That number is SOLD to RETAILERS and not SOLD to CUSTOMER.

Let em say it like this SOLD to REATALIER(aka shipped) is what matters for profits and the company. However SOLD to CUSTOMER(aka SOLD) is what matters for user base and thus developers and also future shipments.

Sony coudl of shipped a ton off of brand name but slow sales will result in slower shipments hence MSs 10.4 million shipped in January leading to what is probably going to be 12 million in June of this year. However if the sell through is higher both MS and Sony would maintain around 1 million a month for more than a year and a half.

Or we live in a bubble that is also NPD/media create and Chart track which is even lower for the PS3 than what VGC has.

 However at least those buubles haven't burst like Sony.

NPD? MC? It is not just VG that reports those numbers, well known expensive tracking firms is reporting numbers that is more or less the same as VGChartz. What is the problem?

Not too mention those firms are independent and software companies trust there data enough to track userbases.

I'm afraid we aren't the ones in little bubbles. We live in the real world, where there are these things called facts. To get facts, we look at independent tracking sites. You see, we like to know what's going on in the real world, rather than what's going on in these worlds:

the "Real gamers only play Nintendo" world

the "Microsoft is perfect and system failures do not exist!" world

or the "No one will ever outsell a Sony product" world (obviously your world)
