Oh, I just remember one thing other companies do to. They won't tell you how many units are still in the channel but not in consumer's hands - instead they will tell you how many weeks shippings are ahead, like 6 or 8 weeks until the channel would run out of stock if the factories stopped shipping. Sony could do that, though I still don't think they have to and all required information is on the table right now.
