As per this reply, the dev stated, “When I saw reports of Sony having a million or 1.5 million pre-orders for the PS4, I didn’t even think twice about it. We’re not disclosing pre-order numbers at the moment for accounting reasons but I know for a fact we have just as many. Don’t be bogged by published statistics. At the end of all this, what matters is the games you want to play.

I wonder what "accounting reasons" means.

But this was probably a stupid idea. Don't say things like this until you can actually report the numbers. It's just asking for trouble.

... What?

"PS4 has 1.5 million preorders. Yeah, we have as many as them, but I'm not gonna tell you how many. Don't believe published statistics."

What I get from this.

"Ignore the Sony behind the curtain, I'll say what I can to make the X-Box One sound like its on equal footing without being found guilty of falsifying information later, but trust me, we're awesome, and you should totally buy our games."

They'll actually have a good argument until Microsoft releases their numbers, at which point it will either fade away or solidify.

PR spin.

We do know that the preorder numbers were well below expectation before the policy changes.

Mad about what? That a Microsoft exec said the X-Box One is doing awesome and we should all totally believe him despite offering no evidence of this because of nebulous and undefined "accounting reasons" that don't seem to stop any other company on the planet from talking about preorder numbers?

I find that hard to believe. If they had that many pre orders they would surely be on the top of the mountain shouting it out to everybody. Microsoft really needs to just shut up. Everything they say now just reeks of desperation. Let your product do the talking if you truly believe it's as great as you say it is.
