What is this bullshit that Nintendo,Microsoft releases sold to cunsumers and Sony shipped? We should not trust numbers from those companies they dont track sold to consumers they just care about shipped. What a bad start for 2008.
Agreed. What magical force do Ninty, and M$ have that can track sold to consumers that Sony can't? 2008 looks exactly the same as 2007. Nintendo and M$ can do no wrong, but Sony can do no right...
They do not... Nintendo and MS quote sold to retail too, In the past (fiscal 2007) Sony used "shipped" as a way of saying "produced and moved, but still in our (sonys) hands"... since the start of fiscal 2008, they have reported sales to retail in their fiscals.
If you are refering to the odd little tidbits that they give out now and then, I believe they just use numbers from trackers like NPD.
Whatever happens... we shall have it confirmed by the time both NPD december and Sonys quarterly fiscal comes out (though it may be difficult to grab from Sonys fiscal due to it refering to all three months, and probably not breaking it into region lke last time)
