77 vs 76


shipped not sales. Read :)


Shipped are sales, they're sold to retailers. That's where the Wii numbers come from as well, shipped.. as in sold to retailers

not actual customers

Edit: Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft does not care about sold to consumer numbers, they care about who they sell it to, they don't sell to consumers. They sell to retailers. When they ship something, they sold it to whoever they ship it to

Shipped is sold, anyone who tells you otherwise is slow in the head.

PS3 and Xbox360 is still selling strong. Stronger than Nintendo wii u.
Its a bad news for Nintendo.


And yet how many more units does the Wii have over the PS3/360?

Shipped units are equal to sold units... Haven't heard that one since the PS3 launch wars. Sony bragged about 1 million shipped in January then boasted that they would pay a $1,200 bounty to anyone who found one on store shelves less than a month later. That resulted in these images.

That second image was meant as a joke btw.

For what it is worth, Nintendo has about 3.5 million Wii U units shipped so far world wide.

So when older consoles outsell Nextbox and PS4 (just like every other console launch) will that be bad?

The PS3 may be the best selling HD console, but the 360 is the best selling core gamer HD console.

It's a profit deal.

Only a baboon would say shipped = sold lol...

It takes time for shipped stock to sell so NO shipped isn't the same as sold and as of this moment the PS3 IS STILL in 3rd place.

How about this, MS puts a headline that they just shipped over 5M consoles beginning of January and now all of a sudden the X360 is 4M units sold ahead of the PS3!!! Doesn't make any sense...

True, but some companies only show units sold by stores, so is not fair...

I mean, sure, Sony already made profit from those shipped units, but they could be in a warehouse waiting to be sold to the final user....

AFAIK Nintendo and Microsoft only show numbers of consoles that are already sold to an user, Sony shows shipped....

If I was Nintendo or any company for that matter, I would look at everything that I did before and what others have done and try to stretch past that. Set your sites high, don't aim to be the middle of the pack.
