That system??
you do understand how retail works right?

sony sell it to the store who in turn sells it to the customer thats how it works so when they say they have sold 1 million it is true they are not trying to trick you, they have no way of knowing how many the stores have sold.

this is the same for microsoft when they say they have sold 10.4 million that is how many have went to stores so all the ones sitting in store shelfs right now count to that 10.4 million.

Notice how Sony never said the word "sold". They said the word "shipped". Big difference there.

During Sony's keynote Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America said the PlayStation 3 reached 1M units sold faster than both PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Sony hopes to sell 6M PS3s worldwide by the end of March.

Notice how that statement fails to be specific and mention 1 million sold in NA alone. Now if you count 1 million sold worldwide, then his statement is true. Clever are the words of a marketer

If Sony had their act together then they would have shipped 4 million units by end of 2006 like they first said they would. And would have shipped to Europe as well.

For the record, I own a PS3.

Too bad Sony can't get in a time-machine and compete directly with the 360 launch.

Genius.

And apock, when Sony says "shipped" they're not like MS which is referring to shipped from distribution centers to stores. MS shipped are actually SOLD TO RETATILERS.

When Sony says shipped, they mean shipped from the factory to the distribution centers. They HAVE NOT been sold to retailers.

Noone has to pretend anything. They still trail behind the 360 10:1.

Have a nice day.
