And of a game that they are claiming isn't selling well.

Sell over 4M in 3 days, but won't ever pass 8M.

Also not sure how precise that website is since it was 3.3M player count by the time it would have sold over 4M per Sony info.

Ghost of Tsushima similar, Sold 2.4M on the first 3 days but there it is at 1M.

Because when Sony talks about copies sold, they are actually talking about copies distributed, sold in stores and not to players.
And GoT have 1.99M after 3 days.

Distributed 4M, solded 3.3M

Distributed 2.4M, solded 1.99M.

Wrong, it is sold through PSN plus estimative of sold through on retail (in some cases it will be very near shipped).

Sure there would be a difference between sold through and played because of logistics taking some time for end user to receive.

The site simply estimate total of users based on the trophy percentage and other methods, they can't really measure how many were sold.
