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.


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?


Because the gap widened from 2 million to 3 million. Despite MS saying the XBOne is the fastest selling Xbox console, the PS4 is selling faster. Bringing attention to that is not something investors want to hear.

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!!

^pony logic


A 1 year head start would have made all the difference for em. Launching against Playstation directly was not a good idea.

They had it right with the 360 launching by itself first.

Or maybe they don't want to flame the console war because...right now sony and there fans are playing the number games....that is what is causing all the hype...Microsoft has already said the focus should be on the games and not sales numbers or specks

MS probably doesn't want to constantly remind the world that they are lagging behind the competition which doesn't look good to investors and developers so it's actually smart that MS is hiding their numbers.

Again maybe they don't want to flame the console wars...as hype is the reason for a big part of the ps4 success

No. But investors wouldn't want to see their console publicized negatively from MS themselves.

For example, MS announces, "4 Million Consoles Sold".

Internet interprets, "MS admits they are trailing 3 million behind Sony!!!!!"

And then the fires start..

Investors and company officials wouldn't want to intentionally release a statement, (even about good performance) if it paints them in a negative light against the competition.

That's common practice.
