Why Hasn't Microsoft Publicly Announced They've already Sold 4 million XB1s?

According to VG Chartz, they should have already sold 4 million Xbox Ones already and yet Microsoft is still quiet since their 3 million Xbox Ones sold in January.

It took the Wii U almost entire year to reach 4 million, but the Xbox One accomplished that in nearly half the amount time by April which is an impressive feat. So why hasn't MS made any news they've reached the 4 million Xbox Ones Milestone?

Because VGChartz makes s*** up.

Or trying to make a big deal about selling 4 million when the PS4 has passed 7 million wouldn't accomplish much of anything except telling people they're behind.

Because they haven't.

VGchartz has been over estimating the X1 sales since launch.

Every time MS made an official announcement, it was actually lower than the VGchartz numbers around that time.

I don't buy that, the why would they announced the Xbox One sold 3 million in January and while at the same time Sony announced 5 million?

I do find it surprising that they haven't sent Greenburg or Pelleno on "US Sales Support" yet.

Yeah Xbox sold 4 million and is crushing 360 pace but because they are behind a console running at 50-100 cheaper and with a strong propaganda campaign they should feel bad!!

There's a decent chance they haven't actually sold 4 million yet. Regardless, I think MS is going to be keep sales numbers to themselves from now on as to not embarrass themselves further when compared to Sony's runaway success with the PS4.
