You know what, I'm going to go with the Chief Financial Officer of Sony's quote (and a financial journalists reporting of it.) They've made 5.5 Million and have sold (and shipped to retailers) 3.6 Million. Sony might conceivably think that their customers are people like Walmart, Amazon etc, not you and me.

SONY sold 5.5 m units to retailers.

3.6 m of them made it to the stores by march 31,2007.

the remaining 1.9 in accounting terms are referred as FREIGHT IN TRANSIT...which means that they are being purchased by the retailers . The purchase is considered from the the time the freight reaches the retailers/stores.


Fine, and of the 3.6m that made it to stores only around 3m were sold to customers.

Are we agreed now?
