No such thing as sold to consumers.
It is always shipped = sold when they talk about game sales.
The only numbers you will ever get is shipped regardless of what any corporate shill will tell you.
They do not have access to the numbers of actual games sold to consumers, unless we are talking digital distribution.
Those 2.8 million MK8 sales are shipped numbers regardless of what anyone says.
Nintendo stated they sold 2.8 million. Ubisoft declined to say how much it actually sold.
Ubisoft has shipped 8 million copies of Watch Dogs since the game's launch in May, the company announced in its Q1 2014 – 2015 financial report.
Can you read?
MK8 shipped 2.8 million copies the same as WD shipped 8 million.
There is no such thing as sold as in sold to consumers when they are talking sales.
shipped = sold
How can people still not get this?
