Yes, but you base the rest of your paragraph on that 1.7M difference.  You can't compare worldwide shipped figures from one time point with regional sell-through figures at another time point and draw any reasonable conclusions from that.

The shipment numbers for AC will no doubt be sold through regardless given the game's performance and secondly the numbers given not only will be the bulk of numbers given that these are the 3 major regions and even if we go from the it's only 3 regions angle for these numbers when we subtract the numbers we got from Japanese it highlights what I've observed from these numbers. No conclusion was even given either only possible scenarios and those were derived from the data given.
