    Microsoft/Sony quarterly reports

    http://www.microsoft.com/investor/Ea...2/default.aspx

    3.9M sold to retail channel. 3M sold according to up to Dec numbers announced earlier this month.

    I was planning on adding this to the previous thread created on the topic but it got locked.

    Of course, as we all know, Sony's 4.2 million sold is sold. Happy QuarterlyEarningsmas!

    Update:
    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/900.../1100-6417303/

    Looks like the Xbone was unable to move a quarter of its 2013 inventory.

    Lol. I've seen a lot of "sold" threads but this is the first "unsold" thread I have ever seen.

    Anyway wondered this because u can pretty much find them everywhere.

    I personally could care less how many are sold or not sold.

    PS4's are available at damn near every Gamestop around.

    First generation with mature enough technology to track these things. It's just interesting information to look at. We can all interpret what it means for ourselves. Let the battle lines be drawn (LOL!).

    Word'er up my lyrical gangstah. Do bare in mind that these are all based on quarterly numbers, though.

    The One did launch in a limited number of territories though vs PS4. Although the PS4 is outselling it in literally every territory anyway, except maybe NA. Just a matter of by 'how much'.

    I'm hoping these numbers simply continue to grow though, I'd really rather not have a single company having complete hegemony this gen.. Not that I support bad business practices mind you.

    I swear lol. Sony says 4.2 sold, that means 4.2 sold. Even though that is sold to retailers. I guess Microsoft is reporting that they shipped 3.9 million and only sold over 3 million. ffs smh horse**** of information.

    No, as I understand it the figure they quoted was sold to consumers. They didn't say how many was shipped to retailers.

    Somebody on Gaf broke it down because people kept making a similar claim FEAR. Could be totally wrong about this.

    I'm pretty sure I'm right on this. When did Sony get the tech to track what retailers are selling? This has been going on throughout sales comparison threads forever. lol

    Sony calls them sold, and Microsoft said sold to retailers. There isn't any difference.

    How is Sony counting numbers sold? They reported before the end of Dec. that they sold 4.2 million. Do they have some real time sales data coming in from every single retail outlet selling the PS4? lol c'mon.

    Someone find some actual information that shows that Sony gets real time sales data from retailers selling to consumers. Same argument from last gen, and no one ever brought forward any real information that shows Microsoft or Sony actually know how many units sold from retailers.

    I would not buy in to these numbers much. It really means nothing right now.

    Microsoft was faster at replenishing their stock. That is a fact.

    Probably because they launched in very few territories and had more to send out.

    I dunno..

    If Microsoft was able to replenish to 3.9 million, and Sony was able to replenish to 4.2 million. Which was faster?

    you're forgetting the fact that Sony launched in many more countries so technically, yes MS were able to replenish faster and more (meaning, their consoles are sitting out there while Sony's are not), even though they had less consoles sold overall.

    I was referring to the dates that sales data was recorded.

    There are ps4s available on shelves in my area as well.

    X1 is not going to be able to keep the sales momentum in the coming months as stated before. The price will become a factor. also, by next holidays, if Sony gets their **** together, they should have more to offer right away than MS. if MS gets their **** together, it's still highly unlikely that they would match in the game selection department. i think the next upcoming fall-winter will show the gap between demand. though the trend should continue once the PS4s are back in ample supply, say from march to fall. whenever they do.
