    People criticized Microsoft when they used shipped units with the Xbox One numbers but now Sony is doing the same exact thing so now using shipped unit numbers instead of sales numbers is okay because Sony is doing it

    • Troy Marcel

      Yes, because people love to hate Microsoft

    • Mr Xrat

      And for good reason.

    • Holeybartender

      Oh,waa! They can because it is irrelevant by now.Sony has won the console war. Microsoft bowed out 2 years ago.Sony has a substantial lead over Xbox,why beat a dead horse? The only thing to keep track of and brag about is NPD sales and Sony is still trouncing Microsoft in those sales numbers. It’s over,deal.

      Well when daddy Phil saw he was trumped, he decided to hold on to dear xboxlive numbers to feel relevant, Sony has handed MS rear to them and eventually they’re going to hit their mark

    • Mr Xrat

      It’s always shipped in financial reports, Kirk Da Moron.

  • The truth-ier

    Shipped is said when the sales are not as impressive as you want them to be, shipped is the anticipated demand, not the actual demand….sigh, i assume he has never passed college business.
    OK, sony is in black basically, and there is nothing interesting about forword looking projections, because they have all types of disclaimers just in case it does not happen, and whats interesting is MS makes more in one quarter (income) then Sony does in a year. For those who actually know how to read a balance sheet….videogames dont make that much money.
    FYI, a reduction in income or profit does not mean a loss, it means didnt make as much.

    • Dougdec92

      Errm Phil loves using xboxlive numbers to still feel relevant, Sony has won the console war so deal with it, in the gaming department Sony by logic will make more than MS, we are talking about video games not their whole outlet, if that’s the case then apple doesn’t have a console to its name, Google doesn’t have a console to rival even the switch but but they do kick MS in the backside, then again Sony shows MS how it is done, not all about the money but about the brains so next time give a better answer than Phil would do man.
