    here we go with the smoke-n-mirrors, playing with words and numbers … only naive sony fangirls will believe that the ps4 is selling like that with nothing to offer now, nor in the near future…

    Shipped,got to love that word,shipped I remember when these systems first came out and MS reported five million was shipped all you hear from these Sony fangirls and websites alike was crying that don’t mean sold to customers and it don’t but all you Sony fangirls and websites will have people believing that 29 million ps4 are in homes LMAO

    • XbotMK1

      Nobody is saying that there are 29.3 million PS4s in homes. They stated that 29.3 million PS4’s have been shipped as of September 30th.

      The reason why people told you Microsoft fanboys that shipped is not the same as sold to consumers is because Microsoft was reporting shipped numbers while Sony was showing sold to consumers numbers.

      Now Sony is reporting shipped numbers while Microsoft doesn’t even want to report shipped numbers or hardware sales at all.

      You just an idiot please do us all a favor and stfu

    • Mr Xrat

      Even shipped numbers dwarf the Shitbox’s, Xgimp. It won’t be 29 million sold through – it’ll be 28 million. 🙂

    • Rodney Patrick

      You sound stupid just stfu

  • Riggerto

    Wow 25 million SOLD since launch that’s an incredible number.

    Not sure on the MS XB sales figures but they certainly have lots of fans:

    “…bring games to our fans”

    “…fans will respond positively”

    “…letting fans respond”

    “…there is an audience of fans, particularly younger fans”

    “We’ve really been focused on our fans and engaging with our fans”

    “We love our fans.”

    Yah for the fans!!!

    Just look at the tears flowing from these Microsoft fanboys all over the comment section.

    • quantity before quality… thats all it is, and it will backfire trust me.
