1.1 Million Copies Shipped vs. Sold (BIG Difference)

I was wondering, is there a way to make all of those known to the investors. Any ideas?
Maybe turn this into a infographic-comic a la The Oatmeal so it will become viral enough to spread?


I have no ideas... Maybe copying it to multiple sites, making Youtube videos about it, and tumblrs will help? I suck at making any comics or videos, so I'm out of the equation in that regard :D

If someone decides to post this stuff somewhere, a slight reference to me would be nice, but I don't expect anything. Just as long as this stuff reaches multiple ears I will have no problem even with someone copy-pasting it entirely and calling it their post.

Hey, morons, quick challenge for you guys:

Find ONE single game in the entire history of gaming that has sold better in one random month(700K-1.1M suggests a sudden spike of 400K in sales? Yeah, right.) than it's FIRST MONTH OF SALE(DmC sold around 300K in its first month) that ISN'T a cult classic.

Yeah, I'll finish that for you: NONE.

1.1 million SHIPPED are not sales, pros.

In b4 shatter, Thunder, orange, and other pros say something stupid about the sales.

I cant believe this war still exist. Ppl, selling a million copies within 4 months is nothing to brag about. Its a clear sign that the developers made a mistake somewhere. Also, didnt Capcom already say they messed up RE6 and DmC because they let 3rd parties help them?

A million copies in 4 months may or may not be a big deal, if it actually sold that much.

NPD says otherwise.

War.

War has changed.

It's not about nations, or ideologies.
It's not even about profit, resources, or ethnicity.

It's an endless series of proxy battles,
fought by mercenaries and machines.

War, and its vast consumption of human life,
has become a rational, well-oiled business transaction.

War has changed.

ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons,
use ID-tagged gear.

Nanomachines inside their bodies
enhance and regulate their actions.

Genetic control.. Information control..
Emotion control.. Battlefield control.

Everything is monitored, and kept under control.

War has changed.

The age of deterrence is now the age of control,
averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction.

And he who controls the battlefield, controls history.

War has changed.

When the battlefield is under total control,

war becomes routine.

Tripweed, war is the same as much as it's changed. War does it it's always done, but it does it in new ways. People fight. A side wins, a side loses. Things are changed because of it, but war will always be what is has been from the beginning.
