Those are some mighty fast ships.. Actual shipping times currently are around 7 to 8 weeks (if by shipping you actually mean ships which still is the standard way).

Yet the numbers from Ampere that started this discussion on the accuracy of current tracking have PS5 at 12.8m with 13.4m shipped. So clearly Ampere don't agree it takes 7 to 8 weeks to ship if their sell-through is only 600k below shipped for PS5.

This actually is a direct result of shortages. Fewer units produced and the need to distribute them worldwide leads to the pattern we see. Weekly shipment numbers are very considerably lower than in past years. So instead of, say, 100'000 consoles on any particular ship, there are currently only 20-30k on a ship. This fits very well with 600k in transit.

This is a no-brainer, you can check positions of any freight ships on the oceans and their schedules. This is not a secret, it can easily be googled.
