which means  more than 2 million console are on the shelves which does not seem right.

Because you say so?

It seems very reasonable to me. Sony definitely expected more sales over the holiday, because those sales were pretty bad, so then the gap between shipment and sales becomes rather big.



Looks like an adjustment will be in order



 

Shipments =/ Sales is what iv heard.



^^not more than 2 million big.

1.4 maybe (we have 360 at 700K difference between shipped and sold)

more than 2 mil seems rather extreme.

What's wrong with 2M on the shelf?

Year over year sales were down instead of up. Sony over shipped.



Yet, today, America's leaders are reenacting every folly that brought these great powers [Russia, Germany, and Japan] to ruin -- from arrogance and hubris, to assertions of global hegemony, to imperial overstretch, to trumpeting new 'crusades,' to handing out war guarantees to regions and countries where Americans have never fought before. We are piling up the kind of commitments that produced the greatest disasters of the twentieth century.

VGC numbers have over whelmingly been confirmed by everyone including NPD, media crate.and everyone else. If anything its over tracked by Sony's padded numbers of ghost sales

you didn't understand what i was saying then,,,,more than 2 million on shelves is insane considering that PS3 is not available in every country yet.

 

1.3 milion diference between shippen and sold :(due to low demand )maybe is more realistic

 

we have 360 700 K lower than shipped and PS3 more than 2 million lower(difference between shipped and sold)

Do you think Sony expected to be close to Microsoft this holiday? I would say yes. Don't forget Sony touting LBP as a system seller etc.

Sony got kicked real hard this holiday. Just recheck the numbers. 1 Million overshipping is definitely not out of the question, and then we have 1 million PS3's on shelves, which is not ridiculous.

Last year Sony also channel stuffed in Q3 btw.

Well, the 360 has only 700k on the shelves and it wasn't hard to find a 360 this Christmas.

 

@ TacoBoy

You do realize that's illegal right. Sony can not give out false shipment numbers.
