@Diomedes It has already been stated by Sony that the 5.5 mil is not the same reporting method as what they do now, i'm sure you've been told enough times.
on the last financial report [end of june] sony had retailer sales at 4.28 million, and you cannot read consumer sales into a financial report. In fact everything tied together with that report... they had retail sales at 4.28mil, the 3 months prior [1st quarter] they had 0.71mil retail sales, meaning as of April 1st 07 retailers had bought just 3.57million.
there is no way you can spin the 5.5 million number into meaning retail sales.
if you read the thread about the Financial Times report you'd have seen vgc has the numbers pretty damn close.... for instance the FT report added NPD and GfK numbers up till the end of July and Media Create till end of August and got 9m Wii, 8.9m 360 and 3.7m ps3.
if you do the same with vgc numbers [minus UK figures because GfK doesn't track them] you get almost exactly the same with about 9m 360 [slightly over] 3.7m ps3 [bang on] and 9.2m Wii [overtracked by 200k, which is not too significant but it is over]
so thats 3.7m as of 7 weeks ago [3 weeks for Jp]..... are you saying ps3 has sold 1.5 million in 7 weeks? those are Wii numbers. try lie [or argue if you are still not taking it in] you way out of that.
sorry to disappoint you, but Diomedes won't respond in this thread ever again. He'll read your post, realise he's completely wrong, leave the thread completely, and then just spout the same bullshit in another thread and hope no one catches him out on it again.
He's been doing it for so long now it's obvious what his pattern is.
Help! I'm stuck in a forum signature!
