GAH, Why no real figures Microsoft???

First, No actual figures of total sales Titanfall, just "top of the chart", which means absolutely nothing.

Second, what's with this shipped number. Sony released SOLD number, not shipped. We need something to compare with Microsoft!!!

Seems to me they want to avoid any direct comparisons at all cost, which makes them look even more fishy. pfff. I love my Xbox One, but **** like this just pisses me off. Where's this promise of open communication Microsoft.

It seems that literally any direct comparison makes the Xbone look bad so MS just doesn't do them anymore.

The SOLD vs SHIPPED number helps confuse their financials until the end of the fiscal year and keep investors somewhat snowed or in the dark about the true state of the Xbox Division profits. Simple as that really. It also helps with Public Relations when the competition is doing markedly better with actual units sold to end users and not just sitting on retail shelves.

Outside of company employees who actually stand to make money off of successful sales figures, only fanboys and people who need reassurance about their purchase want sales numbers.

Probably same reason Sony didn't list how many PS4s it sold in the March NPD. Better to just say "more".

Microsoft don't have to show "real" figures lad. Beta boys care more about sales than gaming.
