Sony shareholder- Your stock is at an all time low. This week it just went under $10/share. You had offer a $1.6Billion dollar convertable bond to shore up financing. What is going on?
Sony- We just sold 70m ps3!
Sony shareholder- Ever heard of margin or making a PROFIT on sales?
Sony- We just sold 70M ps3!

Yeah dood, coz Microsoft dont measure the number of units that have left their factories - no they go and count all the unsold units in retail stores world-wide and deduct that figure from their "shipped" figure to give a "true" sold figure...
They are just so damn honest.

How the hell would a manufacturer honestly measure Sold as opposed to shipped in reality? Its the same thing.

They just announced the 360 sold thru 70M to customers the week of Halo 4 launch. MS announced it has global shipments of 70m by Sept 30. So, taking out the fact that Sony doesn't have a Halo system seller , its more or less a few months on shelves before they sell thru their shipped figures.

Anyhow, they've been very close for 3 yrs...within 2m to overtake the Xbox, so its just a matter of the 360 tapering off. Me thinks it has reached its ceiling, it more than doubled the Xbox and now Wii U is here eating into both the Xbox/PS3 market share. Sony will have more legs with the PS3, its still a year younger and it has Japan and Europe moving it.

If the PS3 overtakes the 360 in sales... oh man... I'm gonna run naked through the streets with an erection. And I'll start a chant of, "second place! Second Place! SECOND PLACE! SECOND PLACE!!!!" And it will catch on like the wildest of fires.

Because that's how important these sales are to me personally.

No, retail tracking.

70m was shipped in Sept 30.

It was tracked that the week of Halo 4 those 70m finally hit customers hands.

Sony just reported shipments.

Posted on Nov 16, 2012 7:14:26 AM PST
again they all report off Shipped. Now whether they claim Sold over Ship is another issue.

notice I said 'two' in reference to the only HD 7gen consoles and not the last gen passed as a 7gen nor the 7.5gen console.

I'd say less than a month considering they usually push about 5-6M in the final quarter of the year.

Doesn't matter....anything that makes one of the two other consoles look inferior is unexceptionable as an argument.
