I think it was at the E3 last year where a Sony guy said that the PS2 had shipped 140m units while their financial report showed that it was 130m.

Well, the former is production shipments, the latter unit sales aka shipped to retailer. I thought people would know the difference by now.

In this case the former is a mistake and the latter was the production shipment number at that point last year.

 

err no. Sony only reports unit sales now. They are now at 136m, so it makes sense that it was at 130 mid last year.

Unless they specify that the figures come from NPD, Chart-Track/GfK, Media create or Famitsu, they will always, always, ALWAYS refer to shipped units.

Wow, no one beleives Sony.



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.

The PlayStation 3 shipped around 10.77 million and the Xbox 360 also shipped 10.8 million: a dead heat. As for life-time sales, the Xbox 360 is at 28.45 million and the PlayStation 3 at 21.35 million - a slightly tighter gap than Microsoft's announced 8 million.

So if MS is currently at the 28.4 according to VG, The PS3 could be at 21.3 and the PS3 is under tracked on VG. Or MS is overtracked. I assume the units in the supply chain are similar between MS and Sony. ... Either way... one of them is off by 1 million units on this site.



@ demacll, or they have different numbers of systems in the supply chain
