    Climb-down on figures as fiscal results announced

    NEWS: 31 January 2008 13:42 GMT - Sony has announced it has cut its PlayStation 3 sales target for the year to March 2008 to 9.5 million units from their predicted figure of 11 million.

    This climb-down on the sales figures is in strong contrast to their stance at the Tokyo Games Show last September.

    Sony Computer Entertainment president Kazuo Hirai said, in his keynote speech at the event, that he believed the company would achieve its predicted sales target of selling 11 million units before the end of the fiscal year in March.

    Worldwide, Sony sold 4.9 million units of the PS3 between October and December.

    Sony has raised its PSP sales target for the current business year to 13 million units from 10. Third quarter sales were up by 1.1 million units to 5.8 million, although game sales dropped.

    Sales of the PlayStation 2 dropped by 1.35 million compared to the same period of last year, but beating predictions, it outsold the PS3 with over 5 million units bought worldwide.

    Overall sales and revenue were up 9.6%, but the gaming division is still in the red - and expects to stay that way for some time to come due to losses made on the PS3.

    "We have reduced losses on the PS3 due to production cost-savings but don't expect the game division to become profitable until the second half of the next fiscal year," a Sony spokesperson said.

    Shipments have nothing to do with units sold.

    Sony doesn't count shipments; they count units SOLD, and the latest report to their investors, indicates that they have sold close to 10 million PS3s already.

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/ptech/1....ap/index.html

    Says 5 million PS3s sold to date by October (which is Q2 of the Fiscal year) plus what is reported in this thread about Q3 of the Fiscal Year = 9.9 million.

    I suppose german tarts aren't too great at math either; and these aren't UNITS SHIPPED, these are UNITS SOLD, retard.

    Now get lost or I'll report you again (and again and again, until someone puts an end to your DCEmu perusing ass).

    Or read here:

    http://www.scei.co.jp/corporate/data...s3_sale_e.html (and add the numbers, for sake of your simplistic mind I'll do it for you:

    3.57 + 0.71 + 1.31 + 4.90 = 10.49 million units and those are Hardware Unit Sales.

    Or here's another source:

    http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/fina...07q3_eleki.pdf

    Look for playstation 3, and it clearly says that reporting of the sales from Q1 2007 was changed from Units Shipped to Units Sold, therefore that means it accounts for UNITS SOLD. (since that report is what the investors of Sony would get to see every quarter, Sony wouldn't lie, as it would affect the stock markets...)

    So shut your face and get a ****ing clue, PS3 is doing better than the $#@!Box did in the same time frame.
