Sony reveals lifetime sales for PS3 and PS3 titles

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony reveals lifetime sales for PS3 and PS3 titles

Yes we have loads of European figures missing as you know - that probably accounts for ~10-15m units. PSN will account for another 5m units.

The rest will be units in the channel - it's not unusual for a current platform to have 20-25m units in the channel this time of year, with 50,000 stores worldwide selling games that only works out to 400 games per store (+ warehouses etc) per platform.

You'll find a similar situation with Wii and Xbox360 - we have total software about 30-40m lower than shipments for both, DS and PSP lower still since it is mainly pre 2007 figures in Europe that we are lacking and obviously these came out back in 2004/5.

Nintendo give a breakdown per region so you can compare that pretty quickly and see how much is from units in channel and how much is from sales we have missing (in Europe).

Also if you use the new worldtotals page you count all the games which we have an LTD figure but don't track weekly.

Yes I know it's dangerous to question VGC accuracy becouse you might get banned.

For example i got my last ban for suggesting conduit will be adjusted down after NPD numbers comes out

Kotaku stuffed up.

The change in 2006 was not from shipped to retail to sell through, it was from shipped to warehouses to shipped to retail.

This figure fits fairly neatly with the current VGC numbers so I don't know what the fuss is about.



it isn't shipped to retailers.In 2007 Sony started to record sales to consumers,so this is the numbers sold to consumers



Is it seriously this difficult to comprehend? I mean you can either read the whole thread and learn from people who work within the industry or read their actual financial reports on their Investor Relations web site.

Either way you learn that "recorded sales" means sales to retailers/distributors. Who exactly do you think Sony sells the PS3 to? Did you buy your PS3 from Sony...or a retailer?

AHHH! Not again! Stop it, stop it!

 

Say with me now, We are not the consumers! We are not the consumers!



good response... I hope everyone that perpetuates this myth will be banned in future.. it is getting very very boring. particularly as it has been explained over and over again.
