"We’re also happy to share today that more than 5 million Xbox One consoles have been sold-in to retailers since our launch"

  • Xbox One continues selling at a strong pace with 311,000 units sold in the U.S. in the month of March, surpassing Xbox 360 sales by more than 60 percent at the same point in time.

http://news.xbox.com/2014/04/xbox-one-march-npd

btw the 5milion is shipped not sold through. Just to point out.

aren't all numbers given by companies "shipped"

no, sold-through means sold to customers. sold to retailers means retailers have bought them from MS but they're sitting in shops.

Sony doesn't report sold-through numbers for anything. Everything is shipped to retailers and always has been. Let's not get it twisted.

Sony has been reporting sold-through numbers for months now, specically stating sold through ... we had one for the 7mil+ mark. o.O. Nice try though.

No they haven't. They report just like everyone else does. It just happens that the PS4 has been sold out since launch so you could say within reason that it's sold through. Sony is still only reporting shipped though.

I gave you a new fresh comment to quote instead of having me do this. But again. You're wrong. Read up.

Proves nothing dude. PS4 sold out hence the say it's sold through. It's not rocket science but you go on believing that all of a sudden Sony has sales data that no one else could get, not even during the PS2 days when they dominated.

Any word on how TitanGreatness sold?

So let's get this straight. PS1, PS2 and PS3 sales were all shipped but all of a sudden Sony is not getting the actual data directly from the retailers? Sorry but I call BS. Sony knows the PS4 has been pretty much sold out so they're obviously going to claim sold and into consumers hands but they're not getting any other special sales data than what MS or nintendo is getting. Your post proves absolutely nothing. You'll see later on after the sales die down all of a sudden it'll be shipped.

Now that is some serious damage control and downplaying if I ever did see it. Holy christ bottomlem. They've been stating this everytime they've hit a milestone mark. All stating sold through. Deal with it, dude.

#412 Posted by Willy105 (24511 posts) -

@kingtito: Distributors get both numbers; but the companies only use the one that's more beneficial to them. If they want to show how popular something is, they use the sold number; but if they want to make it seem popular, they use the shipped number.

No kid, I'm not DCing anything. I really don't care about sales. I'm just pointing out that all 3 companies announce shipped sales. They're not selling direct so they sell to retailers. It's not hard to understand how Sony would come at that conclusion though. They're pretty much sold out every where so of course they're going to say it's sold through to customers. Next year these same sales numbers will be back to shipped.

#414 Edited by misterpmedia (3363 posts) -

@kingtito Face it, if microsoft had sold to consumers they'd state sold-through and not shipped to retailers. Guaranteed. Sorry, kiddo.

#415 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9523 posts) -

Huh, I was wrong about the Wii-U. I thought it was going sell around in the eighty thousands like last time. It actually went up a bit.

Not surprised by the One's and PS4's numbers, although I thought the One would get ahead because of TitanFall. I imagine the sales will go back down in two or three months unless another huge release occur.

Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa......

Knew it knew it knew it...hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

So all the price cuts and Titanfall bundles were done to move the whole 900k unsold on December so that retailers buy more so they could claim a higher numbers and make seen like the xbox one is closer to the PS4 than they are..hahahahaaaaaaaaa

So they are probably at 4.2 million now..lol

Lets wait for Stormyjoe,blackace and the lemming crew to ride the sold to retailer number..lol

So you're saying that Xbox One sold 0 units in January and February?

BTW they've ALWAYS been shipped and not sold through....just pointing that out.

No December 3 million numbers was sold through,it was latter found that they shipped 3.9 million and that only 3 million sold,the actual sold to retailed numbers on December 28 was 3.9 million.

#421 Posted by kingtito (4853 posts) -

@kingtito Face it, if microsoft had sold to consumers they'd state sold-through and not shipped to retailers. Guaranteed. Sorry, kiddo.

Still doesn't negate the fact that Sony's numbers are also shipped. They're not getting any more sales information that the other 2 aren't.

You're just blind like any other cow. I'm done with this conversation. You keep your sales victory kid, I'll continue to enjoy my games.

lmao at cows getting all excited over the ps4 sales!

Xboxone is selling a little less right now just like how the ps3 was selling less than the 360 each month.

But who cares, sales are not games. Cows dont have two AAA games like Forza and titanfall. No good games like Killer Instinct and Dead Rising (Infamous sucks compared to those games) cows have no games to play so they brag about ps4 selling a little more than the xbox. Its not selling much more so calm down cows. The cows need some games to play, they spend to much time here being butthurt, its pretty sad.

#424 Edited by tymeservesfate (1570 posts) -

yup, no denying it. the ps4 is kicking major ass, consistently. still surprising though...the ps4 doesnt have many attractive games to keep taking the sales like this, nonetheless....

no one can say its the price difference either. MS knocked 50 off the XB1's price point and even threw in Titanfall as the cherry on top, and it still couldnt take March. that's saying a lot. cows have every right to be rowdy right now...

You also said that Sony has never reported sold through, as an ultimatum. I'm just proving you wrong that's all. If Microsoft had the same demand they'd be doing the same. Sold-through > Shipped to retailers, NPD or not they'd report it.

1mil sold through in NA

And cool, you won't need to reply to this then bottomlem. Be on your way with your games.

get over it

Microsoft's number of 5 million Xbox Ones shipped to retailers puts it significantly behind PlayStation 4's 7+ million sold to consumers, which Sony announced yesterday.

The PS4 has AAA rated games, although none of them are exclusives, so I'll give you that (Xbone only has one AAAE game - Forza 5).

Also, if we're going to be judging games based on the scores they've received, then Infamous (GS - 8; MC - 80) beats both Dead Rising 3 (GS - 7; MC 79) and Killer Instinct (GS - 7; MC 73).

Finally, the attachment rate for both machines are pretty similar, making the idea of Cows 'not playing any games' ridiculous and self-pwnage for Lems. Infamous: SS sold a million copies within the first nine days of its release.

@TigerSuperman:

Bro, it's SONY HAS SOLD THROUGH MEANING THEY HAVE PUT 7 MILLION PS4'S INTO CUSTOMERS HANDS. People still can't find ps4's in stores, I know I can't so that means that every ps4 they sent to stores it's being bought up fast. Microsoft has announced they only shipped 5 million units to stores meaning you can find loads of xbox one's in stores and guess what everytime I go to the store I see loads of xbox ones and no ps4's. Give it up kid, Microsoft lost this month, Titan Falled off.
