Don't forget portugal!

Seriously people just overbought 2 million isn't a lot when you greatly miss what your system is expected to sell.

FY 2006 shipments = 3.57
FY 2007 = 9.24
FY 2008 Q1-3 = 8.45
-------------
total: 21.26

It adds up nicely

Is that accounted for the adjustments on what Sony considers shipped?

Since they used to count shipped as "PS3's in a warehouse in our back lot."

 



While I really don't care, look at the people arguing Sony shipped too many consoles, they are the same who couldn't wait to see the shipments numbers since they swore the PS3 was dead. Well undertracted, overtracted, they are 21 million PS3 out as of december 31st.

Good job Sony.

I really have not dont have much thought on the matter to be honest. We know MS annonced not long ago that from its sales data places like npd, media chart the british one what ever its called that they were ahead of the ps3 by 8 million consoles. I would take this as been very close to being true as sony never came out and said that MS was wrong in there statment. VG charts has the gap at 8 million as well so it seems that the numbers are in and around correct. Maybe they are off by 300k or so but when talking about such huge numbers that isnt really all that bad. All Im saying is that MS using sales data from companys that deal in exactly that put the 360 at 8m ahead so it must be pritty close to that(as I siad sony never really said anything against this which they easly could have by producing the same numbers from the same comapnys) and thats what vgcharts has it at.

What clear is that MS lied when they said a 8 million lead in shipment figures ...after shipments official figures both consoles are apart some 6.67 million not 8 million.



What is clear is that sony jsut posted a 97% drop in profits, and that's the facts...

Oh Jesus Mike B will be here any moment... He loves his shipment numbers.

It's quite clear Sony expected higher sales and there shipment numbers reflect this... unfortunately they didnt achieve these sales. npd confirmed this also.

Actually Sony said they won't alter their FY sales estimate, so it's probably on par with expectations.

And yes, worldwide sold to retail data is the most concrete and exact data we can get on actaul worldwide console sales.

Japan tracking is easy for VGChartz as 3rd party data is usually out before VGChartz data. North American and UK data is harder, but there are usually good NPD and Chart Track indicators, they happen to be the 360's strongest performing markets. Much of interest with regard to PS3 are the rest of the world, where the PS3 performs pretty well.

In line with industry consumer electronics company trends. For instance our biggest electronics company here in the Netherlands, Philips actually posted a big loss. It's nice to see Sony's gaming division posted a profit.
