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.

And now you are just flat out lying.

The discrepancy you see between sony sold through and the stat on that site isn't that sony sold means shipped (this should be clear if you look at any of sonys financial reports and their usual sell through media briefs).

Its because not all 4M sold copies went to players that actually were playing with an active "online" connection. The only way sites like those track data is if you actually are online while you played the game. Unless of course you really believe that all 110M+ PS4 owners are playing with an active online connection all the time.

Plus a good chunky of the people who bought the game either pre-order or day one if was physical copy may not have received it on that first 3 days that is accountede.

Sure long term we will have Sony shipped+digital and this tracking approaching one another, with only people that never log their PS4 on internet (probaly very small number) being the difference between both since shipped will basically be sold anyway.
