I kept reading this was according to the IDC, that's the first time I've heard of them. For their sake I hope their reporting is spot on, or else future mentioning of their research analysis will be met with reaction similar to "lol, vgcharts". Anyhow, their reporting should be verifiable pretty soon when Sony and MS give their quarterly reports.

All numbers are shipped not sold... Do you think that every time a store sells a ps3 they call up Sony just so they know its been sold through to the consumer? Far out some people r stupid...

Add the PS3 went against a console that broke a lot. Meaning the same person may have bought multiply consoles.

Stop being silly. Shipped more basically gaurantees sold more, or they are very close to. MS still makes more considering Live Gold and none of the PS3 exclusive sell as well as Gear and Halo. Plus MS makes more profit per sale of the console.

I have a feeling vast, enormous quantities of egg will collide with face when Sony/Microsoft report the numbers themselves.

yeah that is kind of true, but ps3 has a lot more exclusives though. But multiplatform games usually sell best on xbox. So yeah, you are probably right there

#49 Posted by EG101 (857 posts) -

Here is the Quote:

"Games Industry International cites a market analysis document by Lewis Ward of IDC (the International Data Corporation) called Worldwide Video Game Entertainment Console Hardware and Packaged Software 2012-2016 Forecast. The $4,500 reports abstract notes that the forecast is designed to predict sales figures for a variety of hardware and software over the next four years

Another quote: "Its also important to note that its unclear if these numbers were garnered straight from sources at Sony and Microsoft, or are part of IDCs overall forecast."

These are predictions by Mr. Lewis Ward.

Its funny that all the Cows on these forums believe these unofficial numbers. Lets see: Sony announced back in October that the PS3+Ps2 shipped 70 million last fiscal year. Sony included PS2 shipments in those numbers to prop up PS3 numbers. Cows think that means that the PS3 alone shipped 70 million but that is NOT what was stated in Sony's report. Now all of a sudden Sony has their best Quarter Ever for the PS3 by shipping 7 million PS3's. All this while every report states that Hardware and software sales for the industry are down over 20% year over year. Yup the delusional Cows are mooing all over the place.

the 360 edition remark was not a point out to the Xbox 360. It was to point how People here make Circles to make their point more correct than the other.

I was reading the WiiU sold 2.2 million units thread where a lot of people were like "THAT'S SHIPPED UNITS! IT MEANS NOTHING!" yet here they are saying that Shipped Units mean everything.
